Bute application delayed until 2011

This is an extract from a December 3, 2009 letter from Bute Hydro Inc. to the Chair of the federal Review Panel.

"Upon review, we believe that additional fieldwork and analysis regarding some of the VECs [valued ecosystem components] are required before we will be in a position to submit our EIS.

"BHI will be focusing on additional fisheries baseline studies and hydrology in greater depth through the spring and fall of 2010. ... Once this data has been compiled and analyzed, BHI will be in a position to re-evaluate the timeline for submitting our EIS.

"We remain committed to successfully permitting and developing the Bute Inlet Hydroelectric Project."
