Today, Mississippi River Power Corp. lost a dear friend. Des Houston passed away this morning at the age of 85.

Des served on the first Board of Directors of Mississippi River Power Corp., filling the role of President from the company's incorporation in 2000, until his retirement from the Board in 2014. Des expertly steered the company through incorporation, and establishment of business operations. He then led the company through the extremely challenging process of planning and constructing the Brian J. Gallagher Generating Station on the Lower Falls.

Des was also the former Clerk/CAO of the Town of Almonte and an outstanding member of this community. He will be dearly missed.

The Millfall & Earthen Dam Rehabilitation project is well underway. The coffer dam is in place and demolition of the old, crumbling concrete Millfall Dam has commenced. Construction will continue through the Fall.

 

After lowering the water in the north channel of the river, we discovered a tremendous amount of waste (steel from former mills, tires, barrels, bottles, etc). Some of the area residents have already taken it upon themselves to remove some of the waste, but the area is large and the task quite daunting. Mississippi River Power Corp. and it’s staff will be doing a riverbed cleanup in the near future and we’re looking for a few volunteers to help out.

 

If you’re interested, please contact Scott Newton of MRPC at 613-256-2403 or snewton@mississippiriverpower.com

 

 More information on the project can be found HERE or on our Facebook page.
