The federal and B.C. governments have issued an environmental assessment certificate to B.C. Hydro for the Site C Clean Energy Project, located seven kilometres southwest of Fort St. John.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the B.C. forest and environment ministers said they had decided that Site C, a proposed $8-billion hydroelectric dam on the Peace River in Northern B.C. is in the public interest and that the benefits provided outweigh the risks of adverse environmental, social and heritage impacts.
B.C. Hydro says Site C would be a source of clean, renewable and cost-effective electricity in B.C. for more than 100 years. “This is a significant milestone for the Site C project. After a rigorous environmental assessment process, the project has received environmental approval,” said Susan Yurkovich, BC Hydro’s executive vice-president responsible for the Site C project.
