Priddis River Hazard Study and Flood Hazard Identification Program

September 1, 2017

September 2017 – December 2017

Alberta Environment and Parks is conducting a multi-year river hazard and flood mapping study along 30 km of Fish Creek and 15 km of Priddis Creek. The goal of these two studies is to help reduce future flood damages and increase public safety for all.

Surveyors will be walking along the riverbank and walking or boating in the river starting in September, and will be focused on surveying the river as well as bridge and culvert crossings. The majority of this survey work is expected to be complete by December 2017.

The provincial study is being co-funded through the federal National Disaster Mitigation Program, with support from the Municipal District of Foothills.

The study area includes the Municipal District of Foothills, Priddis, and Priddis Greens.
