FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – B.C. Hydro will gradually increase construction activity and the number of workers at the Site C Dam.

Hydro says the approach will follow the provincial health guidelines for industrial camps. The first increase in work will focus on restarting some of the main civil works on the earthfill dam and roller-compacted concrete dam buttress.

In March, Hydro announced construction would be scaled back to only essential work to keep the project on-time and to meet the river diversion scheduled for this fall.

Hydro says they will work with contractors to enforce social distancing at the camp and on the worksite and enhanced cleaning.

A health screening process has also been implemented for all workers accessing the site, including the B.C. Ministry of Health COVID-19 self-assessment questionnaire and a non-invasive temperature scan. These measures will remain in place.
