Residents and environment activists are decrying the planned expansion of a hydro-electric generator in Almonte that’s slated to begin construction “soon.”

The goal of the $10-million project by Enerdu Power Systems Inc. is to expand an existing hydro-electric generator along the Mississippi River, which would bring its capacity to 995 kW up from 350 kW. The project is six years in the making.
