Bow Valley Mountain Creeks Flood Mitigation

Bow-Valley-Mountain-Creeks-2021The contractors for the Heart Creek and Jura Creek flood mitigation projects are racing to complete their respective projects before winter arrives. Weather permitting, substantial completion of both projects will occur in November, 2021. 

The MD of Bighorn would like to recognize the financial contributions of the Government of Canada and Province of Alberta, whose grants have made these projects possible. When complete, the Jura Creek flood structure will protect the hamlet of Exshaw and Highway 1A from floods up to 1 in 500 years. The Heart Creek project will protect the hamlet of Lac Des Arcs and Trans Canada Highway from floods up to 1 in 300 years.
