McGraw Falls Water Power (MFWP) is proposing to develop a 2 MW hydroelectric plant on the Matawin River at the McGraw Falls Dam, 7km southwest of Shabaqua Corners. A rubber dam will be added to the existing weir and will work in coordination with the existing reservoir upstream. The powerhouse will be located approximately 150m downstream of the dam. A wood pole distribution line will run 5km northwest along the existing roadway connecting to the existing line to the Shabaqua Distribution Station.
