The proposed site development is envisioned to consist of the following principal components:

  • Design of 55 cubic meters/second for water diversion (FYI, there are only 2 months of the year when the Pet has that much flow... you can figure out what that means.)

  • 400 m long access roads ±70 m long, ±0.8 m high concrete ogee spillway with 2 x 1.5m high Obermeyer type gates mounted a concrete dam structure each 35 m long;+ 110 m long dam embankments with a maximum height of ± 2 m

  • 375 m long, 6 m deep x 16 m wide unlined intake channel

  • Powerhouse building 10 m x 40 m to be located just upstream of the Petawawa Blvd bridge

This information was taken from the Waterpower Site Strategy document submitted to the Ministry of Natural Resources dated September 2009. This is a full seven months prior to the meeting held on May 3rd 2010 when the representative from Xeneca said that they were still gathering data. Xeneca continues to use this excuse to avoid answering questions.

I cannot be any more serious about this.
