Mayor Nenshi's statement on the Springbank Dry Dam

Post Date: Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Following recent comments by the Tsuut'ina Nation about the progress of the Springbank Dry Dam flood mitigation project, Mayor Nenshi shared the below statement with media:

“The Springbank Dry Dam is among the most critical elements of the flood mitigation infrastructure needed to protect Calgary. While we are working on many flood mitigation projects within city limits, the dry dam remains an important part of the solution. Calgarians have been very patient as both the provincial and federal governments conduct environmental reviews. I am confident that the provincial government and the Tsuut’ina Nation can work together to move forward on protecting all downstream communities from future flooding.”
