B.C. Hydro dismantling river diversion on Island, coho expected this fall

Crews employed via a joint effort by B.C. Hydro and area First Nations are restoring and reshaping a portion of the Salmon River after the course was temporarily diverted in August to facilitate the removal of a timber crib diversion dam.
