Deep River is a town in Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada. Located along the Ottawa River, it lies about 200km north-west of Ottawa on the Trans-Canada Highway. Deep River is opposite the Laurentian Mountains and the Province of Quebec. The name Deep River purportedly derives from the fact that the Ottawa River reaches its greatest depth of 402ft just outside the township.The primary industry centres on research at the Chalk River Nuclear Research Laboratory, in nearby Chalk River, a facility of the Chalk River Laboratories about 10 km east of Deep River on Highway 17.Technically, the plant belongs to the municipality of Deep River. Property taxes make up the majority of Deep River's budget.HistoryPlans for the construction of this planned community began in 1944 by the federal government as part of the Manhattan Project, to accommodate employees of the nearby Chalk River Nuclear Research Laboratories. Along with Los Alamos, New Mexico and Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Chalk River was an offshoot of the nuclear effort for the allies and scientists, engineers, and tradesmen from around the world who came to work on the Manhattan project. After World War II, Canada continued on with research into the atom, and dedicated the country to the peaceful uses that could be derived from putting the atom to use. Deep River was situated far enough upwind and upriver of the Chalk River research reactors to avoid radioactive fallout.
