BC Hydro crews fix transmission line after wildfire BCHydro Power smart
This Week. The latest news and updates from BC Hydro.

A muddy thing happened en route to replacing nearly 60 transmission poles that burned down northwest of Fort St. John. So our crews relied on tank-like track machines to haul poles and equipment across the swampy ground to worksites on the line. We also look at another hefty challenge, trucking a pair of 58-tonne transformers to a Burnaby substation, the last stage in a journey that started in Korea. And the Castlegar Source reports on the last of eight important BC Hydro projects to build or improve boat ramps on Arrow Lakes reservoir.
