Starting now until June 14, 2021, BC Hydro will be conducting a sockeye smolt outmigration study on the South Alouette River and, as part of the study, they will be increasing the flows from Alouette Dam to the South Alouette River.
Typical flows of 3 cubic meters per second will be increased to an average of 10 cubic meters per second during this time. Maximum flows from the dam could be up to about 15 cubic meters per second. Actual flows will depend on inflows and reservoir levels.
Equestrians need to use extra caution when active around the river or when considering crossing the river, since water levels can rise and fluctuate without warning.
