This project is funded through the Partnership’s Emergency Preparedness Program and will provide the district with information about how to improve safety and reduce the risk of dam failure.

The review will help improve the emergency preparedness capacity of industry and regional authorities.

This information will help the district respond effectively to emergencies that have the potential to threaten irrigation infrastructure, negatively impact human or animal health, threaten crops or cause significant economic losses.

Alberta’s Recovery Plan is a bold, ambitious long-term strategy to build, diversify, and create tens of thousands of jobs now.
