To celebrate Canadian Dam Association’s 25th anniversary, the CDA Regional Directors constituted a jury to select their best regional dam, based on their historical value, benefits to economy and society in general, and on technical merits, by province or territory.

Now, it is your time to be part of the last step by judging the best national one

Featured Regional Winner of the Week

Mactaquac Dam

The Mactaquac Generating Station (MQGS) is the largest renewable generating facility in the Maritimes. The 672 MW six turbine-generator unit hydro plant delivers clean, reliable, carbon-free energy to New Brunswickers. It began operating in 1968 with a planned 100-year lifespan but, due to Alkali Aggregate Reactivity (AAR), requires refurbishment to achieve its original design life. The facility is used for both peaking and load-following generation as well as providing ancillary services, such as automatic generation control and synchronous condensing.
