What is the status of the diversion of the Rupert. Has the rubber been poured for stamp of the environmental report yet?

Haven't seen much news on this.

I was wondering when the diversions were scheduled to happen? Does anyone know? Hopefully, they are behind schedule because I'd still like to paddle this beautiful river again before it's destroyed.

Chemun, no, they haven't finished the assessment. And I have to do an update on that soon.

Garrett, they got a little behind schedule on EM-1 and I don't know if that pushed the diversion back from its Dec 2004 start date. The latter needs the assessment to be completed first.

I've been doing a little research recently and found this page on Hydro-Quebec's website: http://www.hydroquebec.com/eastmain1a/en/calendrie r_activites.html.

It looks like construction won't begin on the Rupert Diversion until 2006. There are still a few summers left, unless construction is sped up.

Clearly everything is running behind HQ's original schedule for both projects (dams and diversion).
