Open house planned on Grohman Narrows project

The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Prestige Lakeside Resort on October 29.

BC Hydro will host an open house on Thursday, Oct. 29 to gather public feedback on the first phase of its Grohman Narrows channel improvement project.

The company says it has finalized several studies related to possibly widening the Kootenay River bottleneck, including a supplementary set completed as a result of feedback from politicians, First Nations, and others.

“The feedback received will be considered as part of the decision-making process to determine whether or not to proceed with the next phase of the project,” spokeswoman Mary Anne Coules said.

“If the project moves ahead, the next phase would take up to two years and would be subject to regular re-evaluation of the project impacts, costs and benefits.”

The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.

Those unable to attend can also contact Coules with feedback before Nov. 4 at 250-365-4565 or by email at maryanne.coules@bchydro.com.
