(CP) The roar of diescl trucks and construction equipment has a soft blanket of snow covers the site of the big Mica dam 85 miles north of this eastern British Columbia com- munity. The men and machines have paused until spring in their pro- ject, one of the highest earthfill dams in the world. Heavy snow 300 inches a year- forces the annual shutdown at the mountainous site, where the dam will eventually tower 800 feet above bedrock and 650 feet above the original riverbed. The men have passed the halfway mark and have placed more than 23.7 million cubic yards of gravel, rock and I an emergency discharge route glacial fill in place. Another 42 million cubic yards of fill will be required to complete the dam. Prior to the shutdown continu- ous streams of gigantic bclly- the height of the dam to rise an- other 140 feet next season if weather conditions are favora- ble, and the project is scheduled for completion in the spring of 1973. Workmen are also construct- ing a 30-foot-deep spillway chan- nel through solid rock to form for reservoir water to protect the dam in the event of unu- sually high run-off waters or oilier unforeseen events. On the same side of the dam workers will build a 250-foot dump earth movers dumped high control tower to control the 120-ton loads atop the dam, which now towers more than 430 feet above bedrock. Mica Dam contractors expect water of the reservoir as it flows down the tunnel On the west side of the dam there will be six -ntakej for a powerhouse, which is to he built under a future contract. Completion of the Mica pro- ject will mark the end of a pro- gram of control of Columbia River waters. Two other dams built under the Columbia River Treaty in Duncan and the Hugh Keenleyside dams- were completed earlier to pro- vide extensive control of the riv- er's flood waters. The reservoir behind the Mica project will stretch for 135 miles from Valemount on the north side to within about is miles of Golden on the south. The powerhouse, at Mica will eventually have a generating capacity of 2.5 million kilowatts and the storage of water at Mica will allow other major power plant to be built later at downstream locations.
