Over the last several days, Bruce Power has received inquiries from some of our neighbors about noise coming from Bruce B.
It is very uncommon for the operation of our facilities to cause any noticeable noise, however, over the last few days Bruce B was undertaking some required testing and returning Unit 6 to service following a planned outage to in order to meet the expected electricity demands during the summer as the warmer weather is settling in.
These activities did cause some noise from the facility. Bruce Power provides updates on activities such as this through our website and did so on Thursday but given the questions received wanted to provide this additional communication.
We recognize the region around the site is a very popular and relaxing destination during the summer months in particular and we are very thoughtful about pro-actively communicating and considering when activities are carried-out.
