Safety Precautions for Boulevard Lake Dam Inspection


August 27, 2008 – Boulevard Dam is scheduled for maintenance and inspection. The pedestrian path will be closed to traffic on the following dates:

Thursday, Aug. 28 at 8 am until Friday, Aug. 29 at 5 pm
Thursday, Sept. 4 at 8 am until Friday, Sept. 5 at 5 pm

Pedestrians are advised to take an alternate route along Cumberland Street or Arundel Street during this period.

The public beaches at Boulevard Lake will also be closed from 8 am on Wednesday, Aug. 27 until 5 pm on Friday, Sept. 5.  Canoeists and other recreational boaters are advised to stay off the lake from the commencement of work. The area of the river below the dam should also be avoided during this time as water levels downstream may be impacted and could be hazardous. 

This closure is required as the dam stop logs will be removed in order to reduce the water level of the lake and conduct inspections of the dam structure.
