Trenton Dam 1

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

May 30, 2019 - Info-Work: Construction of Trenton Dam at Lock 1: Temporary change to visitor areas

The Trenton Dam 1 replacement project will involve constructing a new 16 sluice dam immediately downstream of the existing structure, with an expected lifespan of 80-100 years. Overall, this project will ensure that the dam is reliable, functional, meets current safety codes and standards, and that its water management capabilities are optimized. Construction of the dam will mobilize this summer and be completed in two phases over the course of 3 years. Construction will begin with replacement of the west half of the dam.
