Burns are planned throughout the Site C construction zone this winter and spring, including:

  • Along the Highway 29 realignment area at Halfway River.
  • Along the reservoir on both banks of the Peace River: Moberly River drainage area; lower and eastern reservoir areas (from the dam site to Cache Creek); middle reservoir area (from Cache Creek to Halfway River).
  • At sections of the 75-kilometre transmission line right-of-way between the Site C dam site and the Peace Canyon Dam.
  • At the Portage Mountain and West Pine quarries.


The burns will take place during "appropriate venting conditions," BC Hydro says.
