Consultants Bill Beamish and Catherine Henry have been sitting in on various workshops about the environmental review, and are reporting their findings back to the Regional District Wednesday evening. The meeting is open to the public, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the PRRD office in Dawson Creek at 1981 Alaska Avenue.
The Site C project is currently in the 60 day consultation phase for its EIS, which ends on April 4, 2013. If the government determines the EIS is satisfactory this spring/summer, it's anticipated the joint review panel will be formed this summer. If that joint review panel decides the EIS is sufficient, public hearings will be scheduled for this fall/winter, with a provincial and federal government decision on the entire project tentatively set for the fall of 2014.
