The joint venture partnership of Constance Lake First Nation and Northland Power propose to build and operate four run-of-the-river waterpower facilities on the Kabinakagami River. Each of the four sites will have similar powerhouse and spillway dam designs to maximize commonality and assist construction. As run-of-the-river operations, there will be minimal disruption to navigation and river flow versus the existing natural regime.
