Work has begun on removing a berm at Whispering Pines.

BC Hydro is in the process of removing the berm at the Whispering Pines Trailer Park, which was constructed to provide flood control and allow access to property during the period of high flows on the Columbia River in July. The material is being used to enhance the waterfront area at Whispering Pines.  At the request of the Ministry of Transportation, BC Hydro is constructing a new shoulder on the river side of 17th Avenue in Genelle with the berm material. We are also assisting with the reconstruction of the gravel boat launch at the trailer park.  In addition, BC Hydro will construct an additional gravel boat launch to replace the current temporary boat launch.
