|St. Lawrence Power Project
U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, returning from a Canadian visit on July
11, 1958, inspects the assembling of huge generator units
at the St. Lawrence Power Dam Project near Massena, New
Part of the St. Lawrence Seaway Power Project, this 3,300-foot-long
U.S.-Canadian hydroelectric station stretches across the
St. Lawrence River from near Cornwall, Ontario, to near
Massena, New York. The 32 generators can deliver 120,000
kilowatts of power, which is divided equally between the
United States and Canada. It was officially opened on
September 5, 1958, by Premier Leslie Frost of Ontario and
Governor Averell Harriman of New York.
