Revised plans shrink the span of the dam, shift the ongoing waterflow to the east to maintain the existing flow pattern and incorporate improved finishings.

The Otonabee Region Conservation Authority (ORCA) will be undertaking remedial actions at the Millbrook Dam to ensure the structural integrity of the dam. The work will involve the construction of a cofferdam in the mill pond in front of the existing penstock pipe and the strengthening of the toe berm.  Public access onto the dam will be restricted to authorized personnel only while the work is underway.

The construction work and installation of public safety measures will begin in early January, 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of the month. KG
