BC Hydro will have crews working on the large transmission towers that run through Seabird Island the week of April 18-22.
They are conducting maintenance work, replacing glass insulators and metal spacers on the high voltage 500kv line on seven towers. This will be a combination of truck work and helicopter work. BC Hydro will be minimizing flights around Seabird Island as much as possible, but noise throughout the day may occur.
The work should be finished by the end of the week (April 22). BC Hydro will keep us updated as the work progresses, and we will pass along those updates to Seabird Island residents.
The Seabird Island Band appreciates your cooperation while BC Hydro conducts this work.
