On May 25, 2017, BC Hydro advised boaters to avoid the Peace River at the Site C dam site due to wood debris under the temporary Peace River Construction Bridge. This was a naturally occurring event in the Peace River due to high water levels and was not related to project construction.
BC Hydro’s contractor has been clearing the logs under the bridge and this work will continue for the next several weeks. During this time, the main marked navigation channel under the bridge is open, but boaters are advised to avoid the Peace River at the dam site for safety reasons.
For boaters who choose to pass through the dam site, BC Hydro advises them to exercise extreme caution.
