The reconstruction of the Scotts Mill Dam at Lock 19, on the Otonabee River
Though a lock and dam have been a part of the landscape at Scotts Mills Lock 19 since 1844, the existing concrete dam was not constructed until 1904, concurrent with the construction of the Peterborough Lift Lock. With only minor surface repairs in 1961 and 1976, the dam at Lock 19 has now reached the end of its useful life. It is going to be replaced, in sections, over the next three years. The talk will cover how a coffer dam will be installed in the river, how sections of the old dam will be removed and how the new dam will be constructed. All while seasonal navigation continues along the canal and through the lock and while any flood water can safely flow through the dam.
