BC Hydro is advising boaters and river users to use caution when passing through the Site C dam site.
BC Hydro is performing in-river work on both banks of the Peace River at the dam site to prepare for river diversion later this year.
What to expect
- In-river hazards due to shallow areas close to the work site.
- Material being placed into the river.
- Restricted areas marked with safety signage and beacons.
Permanent closures on the Peace and Moberly Rivers begin on June 15, 2020, when a debris management system is installed approximately two kilometres upstream of the construction area. A seasonal portage program to transport non-motorized vessels will be available after river closure.
