VANCOUVER: BC Hydro is modifying its work activities on the Site C project near Fort St. John in response to the increasing escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
BC Hydro’s top priority is the health and safety of its employees, contractors and the public. Focusing only on essential work and critical milestones will help reduce the number of workers staying at the worker accommodation lodge and result in fewer workers travelling to and from Fort St. John and the Peace Region.
Over the coming days, BC Hydro will work with project contractors and unions to safely scale back certain construction activities at the project site. One of the areas the project will continue to make a priority is work required to achieve river diversion in fall 2020.
