  • Description

    In British Colombia, preliminary work on the Arrow Dam project in nearly complete and the actual construction is expected to begin next month:
    One of the major delays in the start of the Arrow Dam has been the need to relocate a water-intake system for the Celgar Pulp Mill.Drivers are engaged in laying underwater pipelines into the Arrow Lake.One large pipe will be eased gently into the water on a series of timer cribs.The last few sections of cribbing are being built underwater, and this called for special skills and equipment.The saw is powered by air pressure and when the final cut is made, the waste timber to the surface.The High Arrow Dam will be the sound one to be completed in the vast Columbia River Power Project.Construction of the Ducan Lake Dam began last Fall and work on the Mica carrier--the last of the three to be built--will get underlay next year.

    Each project will provide enough work to keep divers and at least two-thousand other construction workers busy for several years.This pump house isn't the only re-location work connected with the arrow dam.A section of the Canadian Pacific Rail-way track had to be moved to a higher level because of the eventual flooding that will result.In addition, a number of residents of Arrow Lake communities will have to be re-settled in other areas.
