Timelines and Take Action

Flood mitigation efforts are the responsibility of two different jurisdictions, the City of Calgary for local mitigation like community berms and the Province, Alberta Environment & Parks for study, design and construction of an upstream reservoir on the Bow River. As a result, BRFM Society and its members must be ready to respond to changes in the City’s and Province’s timelines. The BRFM Board will do its best to keep members informed of changes to the project timelines and how you can take action.

Call to Action: Attend the next City of Calgary Information Session

According to the City barrier team, this drop-in session is a chance to speak with the project team about the on-going technical studies and learn how community feedback will be used to determine potential next steps.

It’s important that you ask: How will the berm protect the community? Will the berm address the challenges of groundwater following? How is the project being funded? What will be the impact to the environment?
