Stswecem'c Xget'tem First Nation - Telus Telecommunications Tower - Canoe Creek/Meadow Lake

The Project includes construction of a 30 m high self-support Telus telecommunications tower, and installation of associated equipment including an 8' x 10' equipment shelter, step-down transformer and a 40 kW generator set with a diesel tank. The tower and associated equipment will be constructed on a gravel pad compound area. A chainlink fence will be constructed around the tower, generator, and shelter to prevent unauthorized access. A 10 m x 10 m turn around area will be constructed next to the compound gates. The electrical routing extending from the compound will include:  (1) a new 9.6 m overhead power and fibre line between an existing BC Hydro pole along Meadow Lake Road and a new drop pole and (2) a new 131.7 m underground power and fibre line between the new drop pole and the compound area. The existing access road will be used as the access to the new tower.
