BC Hydro says Site C safe from landslides

Amidst calls for an independant safety review, BC Hydro is reassuring the public that the Site C Megadam is safe from landslides in the area.

Requests for a review come following a massive moving landslide that has forced the evacuation of Old Fort, south of the Fort St John based dam site.

While Old Fort has been deemed unsafe to enter, BC Hydro says that additional excavation on the left bank of the dam will provide stability in the case of landslides.

The utility also says that project engineers knew the area was prone to landslides before beginning construction and have accounted for that in their plans.
