Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir Project

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