On Friday, June 7 a ribbon cutting ceremony took place at Denny’s Dam in Southampton to commemorate the successful rehabilitation project funded by the Canadian Government. The undertaking had been in the works for almost 20 years after a 2000 safety study revealed deficiencies in the dam. It took the collaboration and leadership of many different individuals to see this feat to fruition. Construction began in 2017 and reached completion in early November of 2018.
Members of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON), Chiefs of the Saugeen First Nation and Neyaashiinigmiing, Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation; Project Engineers, Kathleen Ryan from the SON Environment Office, members of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC), Ontario Steelheaders, the Lake Huron Fishing Club and many more involved in the project, congregated on the banks of the Saugeen River to celebrate this great achievement.
