Nelson Hosts Meeting on Grohman Narrows

The first phase of the Grohman Narrows Channel Improvement Project is almost complete.

The project team has now finalized a number of studies related to the potential improvements at Grohman Narrows.

A supplementary set of studies was also completed as a result of feedback from elected officials, First Nations, stakeholders and the community.

Regarding this, BC Hydro will be hosting an open house to review this information and ask for feedback from the public.

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

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.

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.

Engineering part of the study should confirm characteristics of sub‐surface river bed materials, additional hydraulic modelling to refine excavation levels, additional operations modelling, erosion studies, modelling to address river bed changes post‐dredging and review of dredging methodologies and material management options.
