Public advisory: Public comment period begins April 29 for EAC amendment to haul material

Categories: BC, Hydroelectricity

A public comment period will take place from April 29 to May 29, 2021, regarding BC Hydro’s application to amend its Environmental Assessment Certificate for the Site C project.

The application to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office focuses on using public roads to haul material from 85th Avenue Industrial Lands to the dam site on a contingency basis.

Hauling would only take place when the conveyor is not operating due to events beyond BC Hydro’s control. This could include vandalism/sabotage, extreme and prolonged inclement weather, equipment repair delay/disruption, expertise disruption, localized fires, vehicle, equipment or human accident, and force majeure or “Act of God” events.

The public is invited to submit comments regarding adverse impacts that might result from the proposed amendment.
