This Area may soon Disappear, if not for Your Help!

If this place looks familiar … Read on
A proposed HydroElectric development will drastically change High Falls on the Grassy River. The scenic beauty of these rapids and waterfall, only 23 km from downtown Timmins, will be lost forever as the river flow is forced into a large pipe to feed the turbine and generator. The falls, as we now know it, will cease to exist. The preliminary work has already started as an environmental screening process is now happening. Public input will be sought probably in early Spring 2008 or 2009 or 2010 or 2011 or 2012 - Who knows ?

  1. sad to think that potentially these rapids and falls could be drastically altered, changing the area forever. All for short term gain. The loss would be significant immediately but more importantly future generations would know only of High falls from stories and pictures. A natural resource of cultural, historical and recreational value wiped out. I am certain that in the future many would wonder how we could sqaunder such a legacy.

    Your voice counts please speak up.

  2. Hi Neil and thanks for your feedback

    I'm sure future generations will wondering about a lot of things that have been done in the name of progress or using the green stamp to justify changes

    i hope this falls won't become another
