2023-12-04: The flow of the Lièvre River will increase today due to the opening of the Rapides-des-Cèdres Dam by the Ministère de l’Environnement, de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, de la Faune et des Parcs (MELCCFP). The flow reached is highly unusual for this time of year, but common during spring freshet. The Ministry is taking preventive action in relation to the situation at the Kiamika Dam.

About Our Lièvre River Facilities
With a total capacity of 263 MW, our Lièvre facilities include Dufferin, High Falls, Masson and Rapides-des-Cèdres hydro stations. Located along the Lièvre River, our facilities are deeply rooted in the watershed’s communities, some for almost a century. As an active member, our team works closely with local authorities and leaders to support community programs and partner on initiatives to enhance the well-being and quality of life in the communities in proximity of our operations.
Evolugen produces clean, renewable energy through its portfolio of 61 hydro, wind and solar facilities, powering homes and businesses across the country. Beyond the clean energy we produce, we look to have a positive social and environmental impact on the communities and ecosystems in which we operate.
Taking a wholistic and sustainable approach is imperative because, to us, the way we operate is just as important as our work to build a low-carbon future.Visit our website
