BC hydro has published notice that it will be doing  fall winter burning of wood debris material along its new 500 KV line to the Lower Mainland, they say the work is  “weather dependant” and contractors will be instructed to not burn unless the venting index is “good”.

The 247 kilometer line is still under construction and is meant to bring more electric power to the lower mainland and Vancouver Island. Merritt British Columbia is also having a cogeneration green wood waste incinerator  worth hundreds of millions of dollars being  built to join to the power grid.
