BC Hydro to test fish for mercury after First Nations voice concerns

bc-sitec23nw1BC Hydro will test fish for mercury contamination this summer on the waterways connected to a massive hydro dam reservoir. The study is being launched in response to concerns raised by First Nations, who say their food fishery has been ruined.

The plan highlights how little has been done to understand potential health risks of mercury contamination stemming from the dam’s construction in 1968. It has been 15 years since a sample of fish in the Williston reservoir was checked, and 25 years since fish in any of its tributaries were tested.
