KAMINISTIQUIA RIVER SYSTEM UPDATE – 
SILVER FALLS ROAD CLOSURE

(Thunder Bay, Ontario) – Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the Ministry of Natural
Resources (MNR) and Ontario Power Generation are advising residents of the Silver
Falls Road area on the Upper Kaministiquia River that more water will be released
from the Dog Lake Dam and Silver Falls Generating Station at the south end of Dog
Lake.

Residents are being advised that high water levels have resulted in the closure of
Silver Falls Road north of Ellis Road to Shields Road.  

OPG’s dams and stations on the Kaministiquia River Watershed are in a safe
condition.  OPG is continuing to adjust flows to control the increasing water levels on
Dog Lake.  This will result in increased flows in the Kaministiquia River.

Water flows and levels can become dangerous very quickly and without notice,
particularly during periods of significant rainfall. People should stay clear of
waterways during this period. 

The agencies will continue to work together to monitor the situation. Updates will be
issued as warranted. 

For information on updated road conditions, call 511.
