Ruskin Dam & Powerhouse Upgrade

Ruskin Dam and Powerhouse


After 80 years, it's time for an upgrade

Built in the 1930s, the Ruskin Dam and Powerhouse have provided a clean and reliable supply of electricity to the Lower Mainland for more than 80 years.

Major upgrades to the facility will make it safer, better able to withstand an earthquake, and more efficient.

Construction began in the spring of 2012 and is well underway. Learn more about changes to parking and road closures. All work should be completed in 2017.
