Site C Dam – what will be under water

The cost of the Site C Dam

“We have more at stake than just our people’s deep history in this valley. Today, we hunt and fish and live along the river. If they built the dam, the islands where most of the deer and elk have their calves would be under water. Their wintering grounds on the river slopes would be eroded by flood waters. The fish would be poisoned with mercury. New reservoir waters would be unusable for years. All these changes to the land will have a profound effect on the entire area, and threaten the way of life of our people and our neighbors.” ~ West Moberly First Nations Chief Roland Willson.

Proposed Site C Dam on the Peace River

Proposed area to be flooded for Site C Dam

Site C: earmarked for Northern resource industry

The $8 billion mega-dam would flood 80 kilometers of forests, farms and homes and over 7,000 acres of Class 1 and 2 agriculture land (the most productive farmland) to generate energy that the province doesn’t need. Site C is supposed to provide cheap energy to power a new wave of growth in the Horn River and Montney shale gas fields.
