Watershed Watch quoted in PG Citizen article: Group challenges hydro plan
Watershed Watch Ecologist, Aaron Hill, comments on the need for an environmental assessment of the Holmes hydro project in the Prince George Citizen article Group challenges hydro plan. Hill states “We are not trying to shut down the Holmes Hydro proposal, we want it to go through the environmental assessment process so the public can have a full hearing about whether it will be something they can support or not. There is environmental concern about the Holmes project, but it is certainly about the process. We contend these are 10 individual diversions linked by a single power line into a single infrastructure source and is, in our view, a single project.”
