Construction

Safety

A Top Priority

Safety is always a top priority for any project. Reconstructing an entire plant comes with its hazards and safety concerns. The project team is committed to keeping everyone safe throughout the project.

The canyon will be closed from site #16, due to its being an active work site and staging area for construction equipment. The paved roadway will be removed to accommodate pipework happening at site #16 and above. Hunting will not be permitted during the project, which is expected to continue through January 2027.

Hazards include – debris, narrow pathways, low visibility, gravel roads, heavy equipment, noise, dust, and vibrations.
