Additional information:
Other name: Barrage du moulin Labrecque (dam X0003708 of the Center d'expertise hydrique).

The structure made of logs and rocks was built to supply the mill of Armand Labrecque.

The dam became unusable after the opening of a breach during Hurricane Irene on August 28, 2011. The riparian owners plan to replace it with a new structure.

This low capacity structure allowed recreational and resort use. The height of the dam is 3.5 m and its length is 22 m. The reservoir had a holding capacity of 15,200 m³, with a holding height of 3.1 m. The reservoir area was 0.5 ha and the catchment area was 29.3 km².

The Armand-Labrecque mill:

The building was built at the beginning of the 1860s. It was built on the banks of the rivière aux Billots (Billots River) on lots 924 and 926 of the Grande route des Montagnes (Great Highway of the Mountains), today rue de l'École, it was prior to the founding of Saint- Damien. The right of initial casting was granted by Jean-Thomas Taschereau, lord of the increase of Saint-Michel.

During his many years of service, the mill will have been run by Jules Fradet, Narcisse Drapeau of Frampton, Joseph Brochu son, Joseph Brochu father, both of Saint-Lazare, Joseph Therrien also of Saint-Lazare, Noël Laflamme, Narcisse Drapeau, then Napoleon Drapeau by way of inheritance, Ferdinand Laflamme, Joseph Bouffard, who was miller in Saint Charles, and finally, Armand Labrecque, a native of Saint-Nérée, and his son Ghislain, who were the last exploiters.

In 1914, a new stone mold of 6 feet in diameter was installed. The carding machines, located on the third floor, were transferred to the shed at the time of Armand Labrecque.

In 1996 and 1997, the Société historique de Bellechasse carried out two renovation projects with the volunteers of the Mouvement québécois des Chantiers jeunesse. n the first year, the unsafe wood water channel was demolished and reconstructed masonry walls forming the wheel cage.

The mill was also "lifted". In the second year, the roof of the sawmill was repaired and the site was cleaned. In the flour mill, very small, the miller had to be extremely skilled in traveling between movements from one machine to another. The operations of the mill were revived on a small scale for the centenary of Saint-Damien in 1982, before being interrupted some fifteen years later. Le toit de bardeau de cèdre a été remplacé par un toit en tôle vers 1970.

The large water wheel and grinding mechanism remain intact at the rear of the building. Cedar shingle production equipment is also in place. The one used to card was sold. Two small dwellings occupy the former quarters of the miller.
