Canada improving dam safety with Bolsover replacement

Bolsover Dam

The Canadian government has awarded Metric Contracting Services Inc. a US$20.3 million contract to improve dam safety along the Trent-Severn Waterway.

The contract will pay for the replacement of the 110-year old Bolsover Dam, which was identified for replacement as part of Parks Canada's ongoing assessment monitoring and recapitalization program.

"The Trent-Severn Waterway is vital to the economic prosperity of this region," said Barry Devolin, Member of Parliament for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. "Today's significant investment in the Bolsover Dam reflects our government's commitment to future sustainability of the waterway and the communities along it."

The project's design, tendering and construction will be managed by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), with work on the project expected to begin this year. The replacement is expected to take about two years.
