Title: Lake Nipissing Levels - Summer 2013 - 2015
Post by: fishbay on February 08, 2013, 06:51:26 PM
LSNA Members;

It has come to my attention that a company called Hydromega - has made an application to the Federal Government for permission to lower the lake levels on Nipissing to 195.75 meters effective July 15th for the season to complete a project to rebuild a damn on the French River, Okikendawt Hydroelectric Project.  This project will go to 2015.  This is the lowest allowable level for the lake and it will cause conditions similar to the summer of 2010.  There will not be much water in Fish Bay and other areas.  This project takes place on the Dokis First Nation Site.  

I will be contacting the Ontario Energy Board for more information.
