The Great Lakes and the HUG System

MAJOR RESOURCE PROJECT

 The water level behind the Otto Holden Hydro Dam on the Ottawa River can be maintained at 179.5 m above sea level, while the water level in Lake Huron is 176.5 m. This difference of 3 m is the basis of water transfer through a HUG Siphon System for 171 km (106 miles)to the Great LakesWhat we need several Big Ditches!

The damage has  been done to thousands of homes in the National Capital Region and along the Ottawa River in May 2017 in millions of dollars. This was suppose to be an event that only comes every 50 years. We can expect that this will be a 5 year event with global change. 

This water could then be diverted to the Great Lakes, where it would be sent on to the U.S. Midwest or to Lake Diefenbaker in Saskatchewan and then on to the U.S. South, Southwest, and perhaps Mexico.
