BC Hydro will be performing annual maintenance to the three John Hart dam spillway gates. The timing is during the summer when water abundance in the system is at its lowest. The work is to maintain spillway gate reliability such as when passing water flows downstream for flood risk management.
To move in equipment and safely complete the work, the road across the John Hart dam will be closed Monday to Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, excluding statutory holidays, from June 19 to July 4.
Advance road closure signage is being placed on both sides of the dam along the Brewster Lake Road.
BC Hydro thanks the community in advance for their patience during this temporary road closure period.
