The Power House is a hydroelectric plant built in less than a year at the beginning of the century. It used to generate electricity for the city of Mille Roches and its surroundings. In operation until 1955, it was partially demolished in 1958 and flooded to make way for the Saint.Lawrence seaway. The Power House offer three possible types of diving. The screens are at about 35 feet under water, the floor and the turbines are about 60 feet deep, and the turbine exits at about 75 feet deep.
The divers with the right equipment, training and experience can explore at several places of the Power House.
