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. Only a retard would think to build a dam at High Falls. If there is not enough water to have a hydro plant at Peter Long how could there possibly be enough water down river to have a hydro plant?

    I know the Hatch people and they know nothing about hydro projects. Their expertise is in tunneling (mine shafts, subway tunneling etc.)


Thanks for taking the time to comment
