- Prior to the construction of a hydro-electric dam in 1950, the village site of Rapides-des-Joachims (Swisha) was not an island. The rising water flooded an old river bed from the north through Lake McConnell. (Source: Kennedy, Clyde C. The Upper Ottawa Valley, Renfrew County Council, Pembroke, 1970)
