Not only did they build a river control dam and lock, they moved the entire town of Iroquis, ON, away from the river so that it would no longer be in a flood plain. They built a "house mover" and a road up a hill for it to use. [StLawrencePiks, search for "SHIL001:".] Then search for "SHIL045:" to see what the area looked like after the town, railroad, and highway had been moved uphill but before the old shore was flooded.
