BC Hydro Advisory: Puntledge River Flow Increase

February 25, 2015

BC Hydro would like to advise the community to use caution around the Puntledge River today (Wednesday February 25), particularly for the Barber’s Hole, Nymph Falls and Stotan Falls stretch. This area of river experienced an unplanned increase in flow from 7.5 cubic meters per second (cms) to approximately 28 cms late last night to allow crews to make repairs to a generating unit.  Increased flows will continue for the day and will be ramped down and returned to normal this evening when the unit is brought back online.

River flows below the generating station and Powerhouse Road have remained unchanged.
