Alouette River Management Society (ARMS)

The Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) was formed as a society in 1993. The primary focus of ARMS, at that time, was to negotiate with BC Hydro an increase in the river’s base flow from the Alouette Dam. This would require changes to the management of the Alouette Dam and Hydro’s methods of flow releases. This goal was achieved in 1996, when the base river flow release was increased by fivefold.
