A 72 kilometre power line, where none now exists, and a 69 meter by 23 meter concrete powerhouse on the left bank of the Lillooet River, not to mention the miles of pipes, roads, clear cuts etc., will most certainly have significant impact both visually and ecologically. Those who do not agree have either never been in our lovely Pemberton valley or they consider concrete and power lines to be things of beauty.
"Water flow" certainly is a" significant issue," and from the countless documented fish kills in other rivers with power projects, here and in Squamish, management and oversight is definitely "woefully lacking."
Can we afford to squander our creeks and rivers not to mention our precious backcountry, leaving them in the hands of powerful companies and a weak government?
