Forced Pipelines Circuit

The Temiscaming old pipelines have marked the Town's urban landscape and the collective memories of the ``Témiscaminois`` for many decades either by their imposing size or by the segmentation of the Town they created.

 The Témiscaming Old pipelines Interpretive Circuit traces the history of these old pipes that carried water from the Lumsden dam to operate the Kipawa hydroelectric generating station on Lac Témiscamingue. It provides a description of all the archaeological remains from the hydroelectric industry. It presents the interpretative potential of this hydroelectric heritage, particularly of these water pipes, which for half a century have been a defining element of the Temiscaming urban landscape.
