Eramosa River Upper Dam – East Channel, Eden Mills – Safety Issues

ORA submits that these photos demonstrate that this dam has very questionable flood control value; however, it does place the safety of the public and property at significant risk in the event of a full breach. Ultimately the owner of the Upper Dam is responsible; however, it is also incumbent upon the MNRF, and all involved, to act quickly to ensure that all the necessary measures are taken to secure the safety of the public.
