Project Complete


In 2019, MVCA completed a Class EA that recommended rehabilitation of the dam.

Louis W. Bray Construction Limited was contracted by MVCA to rehabilitate the dam. Site mobilization began in November 2021 and the earth works completed in February 2022.

Work completed included heightening of embankments, installation of upstream rip rap, installation of cement bentonite cut-off wall, construction of an emergency spillway with bituminous geomembrane and a sand fuse plug, and site grading of downstream side of embankments.

Branje Metal Works completed manufacturing and galvanization of the structural struts, grating and railings prior to delivery to site, removal of the existing deck and railings, and installation of the new deck and railings. The metal works were completed in November 2022.

MVCA and its collaborators would like to thank the public for their continued support of our environmental stewardship and our asset maintenance and improvement projects.
