FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – As part of the Site C Project, B.C. Hydro says more controlled burning of debris will continue until this Wednesday, March 4.

According to B.C. Hydro, locations of where burning will be taking place include:

  • South bank of the Peace River, 16 km – 21 km west of Fort St. John
  • Along Highway 29, 13 km northeast of Hudson’s Hope, near Farrell Creek Road

B.C. Hydro says burning can only occur in the fall and winter months during a specific weather condition, known as a venting window.

A venting window means that there is enough positive atmospheric pressure and airflow to disperse smoke.
