THE NIAGARA TUNNEL
LIVING HISTORY PROJECT
Throughout the past century, Niagara Falls has had a rich and colourful history in the building and development of hydro-electric power. Generations of workers since the late 1890’s have shared their blood, sweat and tears to make Niagara power generation the success it is today for the benefit of our citizens.
The Niagara Tunnel project continues to build upon this tapestry. Unprecedented in size and scope, using the most modern engineering techniques and equipment, the Niagara Tunnel Project is a project of your generation. When completed, this tunnel will allow Ontario Power Generation the ability produce much more hydro-electric power well into the next century.
Today and every day, you are making history. Every worker on the Niagara Tunnel Project is contributing to the building success of this new tunnel. Everyone has an experience, reminiscence or a story. This project has involved hundreds of workers with numerous job descriptions from many companies.
