Transmission work starting next month in Arrow Lakes area
BC Hydro is taking on a big project in the Nakusp, New Denver, Silverton and Arrow Lakes area.
They're going to be doing transmission line work starting next month, to improve the safety and reliability of the line operation.
Stakeholder Engagement Advisor Mary Anne Coules says the line is reaching it's end of life, so work will include replacing and upgrading the structures, cross arms, hardware and conductor components, bringing the line back up to standards.
They'll also be completing right of way vegetation clearing and brushing, which should lead to fewer downed trees, minimizing outages.
Meanwhile the work will mean 36 to 48 hours of planned outages this year.
They're working with local government to decide the best time for outages.
Skittles decided to create a very cool Halloween commercial that's actually a bit disturbing. Watch it and you'll see that it's a lot different than their usual unicorns and rainbows.
We think it's fair to say that rugby players have a lot in common with hockey players. Dirty moves will get you in trouble!
These 2 acrobats are not reinventing the wheel, but they're definitely pulling this trick very smoothly.
