High and Fast Flowing Water this Victoria Day Weekend

TORONTO, May 17, 2018 /CNW/ - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is warning the public to stay clear of dams and hydro-stations on Victoria Day weekend. Spring rain and snowmelt have caused higher water levels, and faster flows among many water systems across Ontario.

"For many Ontarians, Victoria Day marks the unofficial start of summer and the beginning of sports and recreation," says Mike Martelli, OPG President Renewable Generation. "With the spring melt, most water systems across the province are experiencing higher water levels and faster flows, making them dangerous and unpredictable."
In Ontario's Northeast, snow surveys indicate there will be higher and faster flows across many river systems. In Eastern Ontario, flows are above normal due to a wet spring. While conditions are expected to return to normal in the coming days, water levels can change quickly. OPG continuously adjusts the flow of water through its dams to accommodate changing water conditions. These adjustments are coordinated with the relevant river authority.
OPG operates 66 hydroelectric stations, and 241 dams on 24 river systems throughout Ontario. The smallest station has a generating capacity of just 800 kilowatts; the largest has more than 1,500 megawatts.
Enjoy this Victoria Day weekend and remember to stay clear and stay safe.

OPG generates safe, clean, reliable, low-cost power for Ontario. More than 99 per cent of this power is free of smog and carbon emissions. OPG's power is priced 40 per cent lower than other generators, which helps moderate customer bills.
