Power station gearing up for new life; Rediscovering Niagara
From the Niagara Falls Review:
After 33 years of dormancy, there is new activity behind the columns of the Toronto Power Generating Station.
But the stately building that sits above the falls won’t be used to generate electricity. It is being dismantled 100 years after it was built.
In May, around 50 workers began removing the machinery inside. They are expected to clear out the plant, but leave the building intact by January of next year, said Rick Everdell, director of project management for the hydroelectric division of the Ontario Power Generation.
OPG will turn over building to the Niagara Parks Commission when the work is completed. The commission will then assess the building before its future is decided, said Marika Kozachenko, who is managing the commission’s takeover of the power station.
