The Peace and Moberly rivers have been permanently closed at Site C starting today.
The closures come as BC Hydro prepares for river diversion in September, when construction crews will begin building the earthfill dam across the main channel of the Peace River.
BC Hydro says it will be placing debris booms across the river and undertaking other in-river construction works at the dam site. Restricted areas will be marked with signage and beacons.
A portage program will be available to move non-motorized boats up to up to 20' by road between the Halfway River boat launch and the Peace Island Park boat launch.
The program will run from June 15 to September 15, and portages will need to be prebooked.
