Public advisory: Boaters advised to use caution on Peace River

Categories: BC, Hydroelectricity

BC Hydro is advising boaters to use caution on the Peace River, due to the heavy rainfall of the past few days.

Recent rainstorms have loosened woody debris now moving down the river. Large sections of rapidly-moving debris may accumulate in the river and along the banks.

Boaters are advised to be aware of debris hazards and use caution on the Peace River, from Hudson’s Hope to the Alberta border.

Due to Site C construction, the Peace River around the dam site is now permanently closed to boat traffic.
