- Illecillewaet Dyke Ditch Maintenance
BC Hydro would like to notify the public of important maintenance work along the Illecillewaet River dyke. To ensure the dyke continues to effectively manage groundwater levels for low-lying area properties, the 600 metre-long ditch that drains water along the dyke from Kovach Park to the pumping station at the electrical substation needs to be re-contoured.
Starting Monday, November 24, 2014, heavy equipment will be used to remove sediments and vegetation that have accumulated in the drainage ditch in order to restore proper water flow. The maintenance work will also replace the rock weirs along the ditch and clean out the culverts under Vernon Avenue.
BC Hydro does not expect project work to affect recreational use of the Illecillewaet dyke pedestrian trail. However, please make your safety and the safety of your pets a priority and be mindful of heavy equipment working in the area. Excavators and dump trucks will access the drainage ditch from Downie Timber yard, Vernon Avenue, spur roads from Downie Street, and the corner of Willow Street and Edward Street. The maintenance project work is expected to take a couple of weeks and be completed by early December 2014.
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this important project. For more information please contact Jen Walker-Larsen at 250 814 6645.
