Manitoba Hydro has advised us that an anchoring project is starting in mid-September 2021 as the next step in addressing some of the concrete deterioration issues in the Slave Falls sluiceway.
This work will help maintain the integrity of the dam and preserve the safety of surrounding waterways and the people who use them.
Workers will be drilling through the concrete sluiceway piers to install steel anchors between the top of the pier and bedrock below. Aside from an increase in traffic and some construction noise in the area, impacts are expected to be minimal. Water levels are not expected to change during the project and no local power outages are planned.
The project is scheduled to be completed in December 2021.
