Planned burning operations are set to begin today between Cache Creek and Fort St. John, pending appropriate conditions, BC Hydro says.
Debris piles will be burned as part of reservoir clearing work in the Peace River valley.
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.
