FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — BC Hydro has announced that it will conduct controlled burnings of wood debris at Site C. 

The controlled burnings will take place at two Site C locations on November 21st and 22nd.

The burnings will be done at the Halfway River drainage location and on the south bank of the Peace River between Halfway River and Cache Creek.
