BC Hydro - Planned Power Outages July 2020

Jan 29 - Jul 15 2020

The project to improve the river crossing in Telkwa to be better prepared for high water levels is moving forward. There will be two eight hour outages to allow crews to safely make the needed switch-overs 1) from the existing configuration to the temporary bypass and 2) from the temporary bypass to the new and final line configuration.

Construction management is looking at:

                Outage #1 – first week of July
                Outage #2 – last week of July


To try and minimize customer impact, the plan at this point is to perform as much of the work as possible, in the dark of night. However there will be some tasks that require daylight. This would mean losing either your morning or evening to the outages.
