John Hart  Replacement Estimate

John Hart Dam is located on Vancouver Island in southwestern British Columbia near the Community of Campbell River. The original John Hart development began in 1945 with construction of the dams, intake, penstocks, and generating station. The sixth and final unit was completed in 1953. The existing station had no facilities for timely bypass, the materials used during initial construction did not have the capability to withstand updated seismic activity expectations and the ageing generators were in poor condition.
