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 ?

A Sad Pic of the Day

I know this isn't Grassy High Falls but I just wanted to show you what
a Run of the River Dam looks like

This one is on the Groundhog River and located about 23 km Upstream
from a town called Fauquier(located on highway 11)

The before picture was taken about 25 years ago and the after in the 90's

Run of River Dam Sounds a Heck of a lot nicer then it Looks
