Deer Lake Hydro Dam Challenges

In a late morning of October 16/01, notification was made of complications at the Ontario Hydro Power Plant located Northeast of the community (Severn river). We are sorry about not being able to provide the actual name of the falls. On further notice, one of the two power turbines was not functioning as it was supposed to. A crew from Hydro with a diver were salvaging lots of debris from one of the turbine intakes. As they did the same on the outtake, the diver located the problem of finding a cone that broke off from the malfunctioning turbine meters down the flow. The plant is now operational with only one turbine until the second one is repaired. click here for pictures
