BC Hydro continues to make good progress on the Campbell River Substation Upgrade Project, which began in spring 2016 and will continue through to March 2018 with a third transformer coming into service. This project is estimated to cost over $30 million and is intended to provide increased capacity to support regional growth.

Approval pending for decommissioning of 60-year-old dam on the Salmon River

BC Hydro has been able to maintain the BC Utilities Commission regulatory schedule and is hoping for approval on June 15 to proceed with removal of a 60-year-old dam on the Salmon River. If approved, work will begin July 1. In early 2017, BC Hydro developed a cost estimate to decommission the Salmon River diversion facility at $14-15 million.
