FORTIS says Dams Have No Spills So far this year

Meanwhile, FORTIS, formerly BECOL, says it is aware of present concerns related to water levels at its dams and is reassuring the public that operations remain normal. FORTIS says that despite the recent extreme amount of rainfall and a rise in reservoir levels, there have been no spills so far this year. A release says (quote) “Our dams, designed to store water for later use, mitigate potential flash flooding; their spillways allow excess water to flow downstream in a controlled manner so that water rises slowly and gradually instead. A spill event caused by extreme weather conditions is therefore considered a routine part of operations, particularly during the rainy season”. (end of quote)
