[ARCHIVED] BC Hydro Illecillewaet River Dredging

BC Hydro, the City of Revelstoke and the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations would like to advise the public that dredging of the Illecillewaet River is planned for spring 2013 to reduce flooding risk to low-lying residences in the area. The work to remove river gravel will be conducted downstream of the Fourth Street bridge starting in early March when river conditions are suitable. The work is expected to take about 10 days.

We ask that recreational users of the Illecillewaet River area be mindful that heavy equipment may periodically cross the Illecillewaet dyke and Illecillewaet Greenbelt Society Lands from the Downie Mill yard and use the road along the south side of the Illecillewaet River and Illecillewaet River bridge. Traffic control measures will be in place as needed to protect public safety.
