The blasting is scheduled to begin late this week and will continue for the next several weeks, as crews push to meet nearing deadlines for the project.
The city said the blasting is required to prepare for civil site work on a 24-acre property at 2010 Bartley Rd. in West Kelowna.
“As part of WorkSafeBC requirements, safety horns will sound before the blast and again once the area is clear,” city staff said in a release.
As part of early site work, blasting is required to create access and service line conduits to the site and establish foundations for the plant and the required holding tank reservoirs, according to the City of West Kelowna.
