Access to river restricted

BC Hydro has closed public access to the Campbell River beside the John Hart Generating Station

Effective immediately, BC Hydro has closed public access to the Campbell River beside the John Hart Generating Station due to a dangerous tree hazard within the river.  With the high river flows we experienced last week, the tree in the river has moved yet again with the base of the tree swinging out into the river channel.

BC Hydro has been monitoring the situation since the tree fell into the river in March from the wind storm. We have been in contact with Destiny River Adventures, BC Parks, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

BC Hydro asks the public to access the river below the tree hazard. Should the tree be dislodged, public river access from our property will be restored.

Signs will be placed in the John Hart parking lot and on the river access gate.

The only river access that will be provided from our property is to Destiny River Adventures.

Kohle Silverton,

BC Hydro
