The Steel Water Pipelines are part of a town trail with information panels on the hydro electric facilities. The pipe sections extend uphill through mostly forested areas with the trail going around most of them. In 1913, the Riordon Pulp and Paper Company Limited began to developed a pulp and paper mill in Temiscaming, with a town for its workers. In 1918 it was completed along with the Lumsden's Mill dam, while work continued into 1919 for the power facilities. In 1926, the hydro facilities were sold to the Gatineau Power Company, which built a "tower of balance" and this steel pipeline connecting it to the power house below.
