28 April 2019. The government of Quebec has issued a risk of dam failure alert related to the Rouge River downstream of Chute-Bell dam. The government has directed people in the affected area to evacuate immediately, effective yesterday afternoon. The dam impounds water for a 10-MW hydroelectric powerhouse, and water has been overtopping it due to a high flow rate in the river. The run-of-river Chute-Bell facility contains two turbine-generator units and was commissioned in 1915.
