The Mississippi River system remains in a Level III- Severe drought, but flows have increased over the past week enough that we were able to restart one unit on December 2nd. Our present output is slightly over 500KW.

 

News & Notes (updated November 22, 2016)

There has been no major change in flows. The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority issued a new Watershed Conditions statement earlier today. It can be found HERE.

 

News & Notes (updated November 7, 2016)

The station is still offline and the river system is remains in a Level III Drought.

We removed the dock at the boat launch in Metcalfe GeoHeritage Park earlier today. We closed the seasonal public washroom last week. We have also begun removing picnic tables for winter storage, although we'll leave a few out for the immediate future.

 

News & Notes (updated October 20, 2016)

The station has been offline since June 16th due to low water. The water situation on the Mississippi River has been bad since late May and there is no end in sight.

As a result of the lack of hydro generation in the second half of this year, some work had to be postponed. One item that the public will notice is the repair work and painting of the old generating station building. The work is mostly cosmetic but is a significant expense. This project will be completed in 2017.

We held our Annual General Meeting on September 28th. There were lots of great questions and discussion. If you have any follow up questions or weren't able to attend and have some questions of your own, please let us know. You can reach us at 613-256-2403 or info@mississippiriverpower.com.
