Walking Down To The River

The concrete structure supported the penstock delivering water to the Kipawa Generating Station in Temiscaming, QC.

The penstock is gone and its route has been used to create a unique park.

Temiscaming Pipeline Park

The Kipawa Power Station on the East bank of the Ottawa River in Temiscaming was supplied by a pipe of the diameter you see in the photograph. The pipe collected water at the Lumsden Dam on Gordon Creek above the town, ran through the centre of town and delivered the water to the turbines in the power house. The electricity was used to power the pulp mill and light the town.

The town has created a linear Park with historical information stops to tell the story of the development of Temiscaming.
