Throughout the week, Hydro Quebec began rebuilding a section of the 120 kilovolt (kV) line at the Bryson-Des Chenaux generating station in the MRC Pontiac in the Litchfield sector. Hydro Quebec has started dismantling the cables at the powerhouse, above the Ottawa River, which will interrupt navigation on the river until September 17, between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
The advisor - Community Relations at Hydro-Quebec, Alain Paquette gave more details.
Commissioned in 1941, the line to be repaired connects the switchyard at the Bryson Generating Station to the Hydro One facilities in Ontario. This project involves the reconstruction of a 1.6 km line located in Litchfield Industrial Park that will continue until the end of 2020.
Hydro-Québec asks residents to exercise caution near the site.
