Long Description:
Right where the description said it should be, though naturally the NRCAN coordinates are waaaay off. My coords should enable anyone to walk right up to it. It's a rounded top brass disc and any markings it may have had are long gone from the foot traffic. Wouldn't have thought there would be much traffic there, but the disc is well worn.

From NRCAN:

Hugh keenleyside dam, located south side and centre of navigation lock, brass plug on sidewalk, 4.9 m south of edge of the lock, 5.5 m east of traffic control light.
