BC Hydro submits Ladore and Strathcona projects to BC Utilities Commission

June 26, 2023

BC Hydro has achieved another capital project milestone this month by submitting a combined project application to the BC Utilities Commission on the planned seismic upgrades to the Strathcona and Ladore facilities on the Campbell River hydroelectric system.

“These two upgrade projects, along with the John Hart Dam seismic upgrades, will enable these facilities to continue to safely pass water downstream following a major earthquake or during a major flood event,” says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “These projects are about downstream public safety.”

The Strathcona Dam Water Discharge Upgrade Project is required to address dam safety risks at the facility and enable the lowering of the reservoir water level after a major earthquake.
