As it’s nearing the end of its lifespan, the plan is to replace the portion of the natural gas pipeline that crosses the Muskwa River in ensure it remain a “safe and reliable” source for the community. 

FortisBC says it has been in discussions for years with local government officials and First Nation representatives to look at option for crossing the river. In 2011, it was noted that the pipeline in the river had become exposed, and that Fortis wanted to reroute it out of the river and add it onto the Muskwa River Bridge. 

The pipeline replacement is still in the planning phase, and the public can learn more at the meeting. The presentation is scheduled for 5 to 6 p.m.
