More Creek Hydroelectric Project

Alaska Hydro Corporation, a British Columbia based company, is proposing to construct and operate a 75-megawatt hydroelectric facility with reservoir storage, approximately 130 kilometres north of Stewart, in British Columbia, and 95 kilometres east of the Alaskan border. The project would be located on More Creek, which drains into the Iskut River and then the transboundary Stikine River. As proposed, the More Creek Hydroelectric Project would generate approximately 348 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, and its reservoir storage area would cover approximately 2,680 hectares of the More Creek drainage area basin. The proposed project would include the construction and operation of a powerhouse and energy generation facilities, a transmission line, a water intake, dam and reservoir, concrete works, as well an access road and other construction related components.
