BC Hydro still predicting no summer spill at Williston Reservoir

After all the rain the Peace Region has been receiving, BC Hydro says a spill isn’t forecasted at the Williston Reservoir.

BC Hydro’s Dave Conway says water supply levels are pretty close to normal and, a spill this year is still unlikely.

Last July, the reservoir came close to its fill limit. Even when that happens, Conway says the turbines work more efficently when generating electricity.
