Source of Loud Explosions Heard Near Ross Haven

If you’ve been hearing a series of loud explosions near Ross Haven, it’s likely due to the construction of the Fort McMurray West 500-KV Transmission Project.

ATCO is using a process known as implosive splicing, which creates not only a stronger more efficient transmission line but also a loud exploding noise.
