Posted on 06/10/2021
Planned power outage for June 12 to impact the Nass, Meziadin Junction and Stewart

The Nisga’a communities in the Nass Valley, the District of Stewart, and Meziadin Junction will be without power for approximately 12 hours on Saturday, June 12 because of BC Hydro system upgrades.

The hydro and power authority will be performing necessary system upgrades simultaneously within the Skeena and Aiyansh substations that necessitates the power outage. The affected communities will be without power from 7 a.m. to approximately 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 12. 

BC Hydro recognizes there’s never a good time for a planned outage, but the work is required and daylight is necessary for crew safety. Crew members will be onsite and performing preparatory tasks in the hours prior to the outage event.
