VIDEO: The story of the Salmon River Diversion Dam removal

BC Hydro has put together a video story on the removal of the Salmon River diversion dam.

Located between Campbell River and Sayward, the Salmon River Diversion facility was constructed in 1957 to 1958. It was used to divert water from the Salmon River through a three kilometre canal system into Brewster Lake and eventually into the Lower Campbell Reservoir for power generation.

In August, the dam was removed and later in the fall the restored river course began welcoming its first salmon runs.

This week, Hydro released a video overview of the project produced in collaboration with SuavAir and Tremain Media.
