Tree trimming & power lines
This Week
The latest news and updates from BC Hydro

May 15, 2017

We've kicked off our spring safety campaign with videos that explain how to safely do yard work and trim trees, by ensuring that all work is done at least three metres away from power lines. Also this week, we look at what the deep snow pack could mean to water levels in our Columbia River system, and we learn about the Pacheedaht First Nations' proposal for eco-tourism at Jordan River, downstream from BC Hydro's Jordan River Dam, on Vancouver Island.
