Wildfire Update: Message from BC Hydro

Stefanie Poisson

The District of Clearwater is in communication with BC Hydro regarding the rumoured power outage. We are happy to relay the following message from BC Hydro:
BC Hydro is aware of the wildfire near our transmission line in Little Fort. At this time, the fire is not an imminent threat to our transmission line. We are working in coordination with other agencies to monitor the situation. There is no plan, and no reason, to cut power to the transmission line during these fire events unless required to protect the safety of the public or workers. To date, we have not received such a request. For information about planned power outages, please visit bchydro.com.
