Timeline of Big Bar events
On 3 August 2019 Rio Tinto received an Order from the BC Comptroller of Water Rights to suspend the STMP.
The Order was issued to facilitate instream works at the Big Bar land slide area and possibly facilitate salmon passage through the slide area. A landslide has created an obstacle to salmon migration, including the salmon of the Nechako watershed that the STMP is intended to protect.
