TC Energy has a blowdown planned for our area.  The launch will take place July 7 - 9 between the hours of 10am and 5pm and will end on the BC side of the border.  See the maps at for exact locations.

The sound during a blowdown can be as loud as an airplane engine and may last anywhere from a few minutes to multiple hours, depending on the amount of pipe being depressurized. As the flow of gas gradually slows down, the noise also lessens.
Residents living in close proximity to the planned blowdown location will receive notification of the blowdown prior to the work beginning.
For details, see the Blowdown Notification Fact Sheets.
