Pointe du Bois Spillway Replacement - Environmental Assessment and Licensing
|Location:||Pointe du Bois on the Winnipeg River, Manitoba|
Services Provided by NSC:
Manitoba Hydro undertook a project to replace the existing spillway and sluiceway at the Pointe du Bois Generating Station with a new 7-bay spillway. The project was initiated to maintain public and dam safety and provide a safer working environment for site staff. NSC led the aquatic component of the Environmental Impact Assessment process.
