Public Safety

Committed to Keeping the Public Safe

Columbia Power is committed to public safety. We have installed highly visible warning signs around facilities and lands along with safety precautions including fences, buoys, safety booms and barriers. These are provided to help ensure public awareness and safety. All warning signs and safety precautions should be obeyed.

Each year Columbia Power highlights boater safety. Getting too close to dams and hydro-power facilities is always dangerous. A spot that seems calm and safe one moment can turn into a dangerous surge of rising and fast-flowing water quickly and without warning. View the FortisBC – Kootenay Lake Levels web page for information on water levels, and see the Canadian Office of Boating Safety’s Safe Boating Guide for boating safety tips.
