Chin Reservoir Expansion and Modernization Project

The St. Mary River Irrigation District is proposing to expand and modernize the Chin Reservoir, an off-stream reservoir on the St. Mary main canal located south of Taber, Alberta. As proposed, the Chin Reservoir Expansion and Modernization Project would increase the reservoir's flood capacity, including relocation of the east dam, and upgrading existing reservoir structures to align with provincial dam safety regulations. The project would increase the reservoir's water storage capacity by 128 million cubic metres and the footprint of the flood area by approximately 708 hectares.
