This Week. The latest news and updates from BC Hydro.

June 13, 2016

BC Hydro crews needed to perform some delicate work as part of the relocation of a pair of osprey nests atop power poles at Salmon Arm. The nests had caused several power outages. In Chilliwack, elected officials and electric car enthusiasts gathered to mark the installation of two new fast-charging stations. And last Friday, we opened the Our Story, Our Voice gallery at the W.A.C. Bennett Dam Visitor Centre, a gallery that tells the story of the impact creation of the dam and reservoir in the 1960s had on First Nations in the area.

The smaller the nest, the more interesting the nesting platform. Our Natural Resource Specialist, Fraser Corbould, snapped this hummingbird nest nestled in at our Lougheed Substation which is undergoing maintenance work. A barrier was erected to limit disturbance which proved to be effective, as a couple juveniles were spotted two weeks later.
