Dam Gates Reopened
June 17, 2002
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASSENA-The New York Power
Authority announced Monday that the gates at Iroquois Dam near Waddington
have been reopened to their normal operating positions, except for gate
Number 3 on the U.S. side, due to decreased water levels on Lake St.
Lawrence. Gate Number 3 will remain closed for maintenance for the
foreseeable future. The order to reopen the gates was issued by the
International St. Lawrence River Board of Control to the New York Power
Authority and Ontario Power Generation, joint owners of the dam.
