Wabagishik GS Side Dam – Vale

The VRS is writing to offer our strong support for Vale’s proposed new safety booms and the relocation of existing safety booms at its generating stations on the Spanish and Vermilion Rivers. It is reassuring that Vale is taking public safety around its dams seriously and has identified opportunities to improve controls and safety measures at the Big Eddy GS, High Falls No. 2 and No. 2 GS, Nairn Falls GS and Wabagishik GS through the addition of downstream safety booms and through re-anchoring of some of the upstream booms to improve self-rescue capabilities.
