Slide Show: Pointe du Bois dam

  • Print

The Pointe du Bois dam is over 100 years old and has been providing the City of Winnipeg with energy since the first of the city's electric stoves and hot water tanks were installed. A new spillway is being built to bring it into the 21st century.

MIKE DEAL / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

Construction continues on the structure for the new spillway. The dam is more than 100 years old and was built to power Winnipeg's street cars and allow for street lights before WW I. Hydro plans to spend more than $2 billion to replace it, subject to approval. MIKE DEAL / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
