FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. –  Consultations for the Cache Creek boat launch’s proposed relocation are ongoing until January 14th.

BC Hydro has applied to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office to amend its Environmental Assessment Certificate for the Site C project.

The amendment focuses on relocating the proposed Cache Creek boat launch due to site challenges at the Cache Creek location, including steep access.

Hydro said in a release that the proposed new location east of the Halfway River is preferred because of its proximity to the pre-existing Halfway River. The location also has good access from Highway 29, will have low impacts on vegetation, and will have lower overall construction and operating costs.

Residents have been invited to submit comments regarding any negative impacts resulting from the proposed relocation.
