Lower Churchill River Weir

In 1994, Manitoba Hydro and the Town of Churchill initiated the Lower Churchill River Water Level Enhancement Weir Project. The project was a collaborative effort to investigate mitigation options intended to partially address lower water levels occurring along the lower Churchill River as a result of Manitoba Hydro's Churchill River Diversion (CRD). The design included the construction of a rockfill weir across the Churchill River, and other ancillary components. The primary objective of the project was to enhance water levels along a 10-km reach of the lower Churchill River, thereby improving boating and increasing the amount and productivity of fish habitat to support fish populations in that reach of the river.
