Ontario Power Generation Corporation advises users of the St. Lawrence River that the gates used for recreational passage at Iroquois Dam remain closed. These gates were closed due to significantly above average water flow and will remain lowered until conditions allow for safe passage through these gates. Boaters are advised that they will need to use the Iroquois Lock for passage.
