Time for a Change?
 
Re-visioning the legacy engineering
A concept for rethinking the design impact of the dam

Communities, Legislatures, and Companies struggle
with legacy systems that are only kept because the assets, ideas, and careers are amortized on the books.
 
Projects struggle with legacy systems, too.
 
Could re-visioning the underlying original premise
--a 40-50 year old vision--and the architecture of Site C  transform the debate? 
 
Could we start a new conversation?
Could we create a hybrid solution?
 
Could we use Run-of-River Hydro generation
to create a sub-ecosystem that mimics nature?
 
Could BC Hydro's activities become interwoven into the
natural ecosystem of the Peace River watershed
vs. the discredited Big Dam system that guts the river?
