Deadhorse Coulee Reservoir Project

The Bow River Irrigation District is proposing to construct and operate the Deadhorse Coulee Reservoir project, a new reservoir located on the Bow River Irrigation District main canal, approximately 10 kilometres southeast of Enchant, Alberta. The reservoir would have a surface area of 470 hectares and a water storage capacity of 24.86 million cubic metres. The project is proposed to allow water storage for irrigation, and provide a location for the community to participate in sport fishing and other water-related activities.
