After the flood discharge in the spring, timber stop logs were placed in the spillway, raising the water an additional 3 m to the top of the dam and providing a working head of 9 m. The 79-m-long timber dam was built with 13 rows of tamarack piling (between 4.8 m to 15 m in length) driven close together into the river's clay bottom. The dam's upper side was faced with tongue-and-groove lumber.
