The 4.6 Megawatt Brian J. Gallagher Generating Station came online on April 9, 2010.


 News & Notes March 20, 2017

 Flows peaked on March 11th at just under 110 cms. As of this morning, the flow (as measured at the Appleton Stream Gauge) is 82 cms. We expect another peak in the first two weeks of April as temperatures continue to rise.

We have not yet submitted our amendment application to the MOECC. We are still in the information gathering stage and are awaiting some agency replies.


 News & Notes February 15, 2017

Flows have been at or near the average for this time of year, for the past month. As a result, the generating station is operating at very close to full capacity. We expect flows to rise again this weekend, with warmer weather causing some snow melt.

We are still awaiting replies from various agencies relating to our proposed Permit To Take Water amendment. The proposal is to temporarily elminate the 2.2 cubic metres per second compensation flow requirement during drought conditions where the flow is below 6.5 cms during the period of November 15th to March 15. With the present flows, we will not require this amendment this year. We are moving forward with the amendment request to protect the station in future years where low flows may exist in winter conditions.


 News & Notes January 9, 2017

Flows have increased significantly over the past few weeks. The flow was down around 7 cubic metres per second two weeks ago and is now close to 25 cms, Despite the huge increase, the flow is still only at about 60% of the historical average for this time of year.
