We thought our members may find this article of interest.

The Springbank Off-stream Reservoir Project falls under Alberta Transportation, headed by Brian Mason the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure.  Below is an excerpt from the article, referring to statements from the Minister:

The minister had strong words about his government’s intention to move ahead with the project, saying working with landowners and getting voluntary agreements would be far preferable to expropriation.

“But I want to be clear, this government is determined to put in place adequate flood protection for Calgary and other downstream residents to prevent a repeat of the disastrous 2013 flood,” he said.

The decision to move forward on the project has been finalized, he said, and the government has no intention of losing another construction year.
