Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project Up for Comment

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has commenced a federal environmental assessment for the proposed Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project, located approximately 15 kilometers west of Calgary, Alberta.

The Agency is inviting public to comment on which aspects of the environment may be affected by this project and what should be examined during the environmental assessment.

Deadline for submitting comments is July 25, 2016.

The Government of Alberta (Alberta Transportation) proposes to construct flood mitigation infrastructure on lands adjacent to the Elbow River, approximately 15 kilometers west of Calgary, Alberta.

As proposed, the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project would divert flood waters during extreme flood events from the Elbow River to an adjacent wetland. The flood waters would be stored in a temporary reservoir before being diverted back into the river.

The proposed project would consist of an off-stream storage reservoir, a diversion structure and channel, an off-stream storage dam, outlet works, and road modifications.
