B.C Hydro is getting set to ramp up flows down Elk Falls Canyon.
Spokesperson Stephen Watson points out this is to accommodate migrating salmon passing through the Campbell River system.
“There’s some good fish habitat between the falls and the John Hart Generating Station.
So beginning Tuesday (tomorrow) and Wednesday and the following eight weeks after that, we’ll be increasing flows from about four cubic metres per second to seven.”
Watson also notes Hydro will be ramping up flows at the Canyon from October 2-6 for scheduled maintenance.
