A presentation made by the Chair at ORA’s 16 October 2021 Annual General Meeting:
A 3 MW run-of-river hydroelectric dam was completed at Eighty Foot Falls, on the Misema River, in 2003 by Canadian Renewable Energy Corp. This facility is now owned and operated by TransAlta Energy, and according to a recent hydrograph, appears to be running as a modified peaking run-of-river dam. When did the operating strategy for this generating station change and how? Was the public informed? These are all questions for which Ontario Rivers Alliance is seeking answers.
