White River Route (4-6 days) intermediate
Note: White River – Temporary Canoe Route Closure May 1st 2012 to May1st 2015
Commencing in late April 2012, Pic Mobert Hydro and Regional Power will be constructing two Hydro Projects on the White River below the existing MNR dam located within White Lake Provincial Park. The sites will be cleared of trees in late April 2012 with rock blasting and the construction of roads, dams, and powerhouses etc. to commence later in the spring. The projects are located 3.2 km below the existing MNR dam to Fearless Rapids (upper site) and further 12 km downstream at Chicagonce Falls (lower site). These projects will be completed late 2014 or early 2015. During this time period all existing portages and campsites within the construction zone will be closed due to the clearing, blasting and construction of the projects. To ensure the safety of all river users’ water travel through or adjacent to these sites will be prohibited from May 1st 2012 to May1st 2015. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
