FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – B.C. Hydro is advising Peace River boaters and users to use caution when passing through the Site C dam site.

According to Hydro, in-river work is being performed on both banks of the Peace River at the dam site to prepare for river diversion later this year.

Boaters can expect to see in-river hazards due to shallow areas close to the work site, material being placed into the river, and restricted areas marked with safety signage and beacons.

Earlier in the month, Hydro introduced a portage program to allow boaters to travel safely around the construction site.
