Big boom is back on
The Lakeview Generating Station is scheduled to be demolished early Monday morning.
The huge powerhouse at Lakeview Generating Station is now scheduled to meet its doom tomorrow morning, sometime after 8 a.m.
The gigantic structure will be felled by 726 pounds of dynamite in a series of 53 explosions if the weather cooperates.
The experts from Murray Demolition hired to implode the building require strong offshore winds of a minimum of 20 kms. per hour to blow the dust from the demolition out over Lake Ontario rather than over nearby residences.
The explosion was originally scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Monday but was postponed due to inappropriate weather conditions.
Ontario Power Generation spokesman Ron Osborne says that based on Environment Canada's weather predictions, "it appears that there is a window of opportunity between 8 a.m.-10 a.m. tomorrow."
Those who want to watch the demolition are invited to attend at the Roy McMillan headland park at the foot of Hampton Cres.
There is a restriction zone of 500 metres on land surrounding the plant and 2 kilometres into the water.
