Pinebrook stormwater diversion project is funded by the County and Alberta Transportation. A proposed plan includes use of 101 Street owned by the City of Calgary. The Community of Pinebrook has had historical flooding issues with large areas upstream draining through the development. The plan is to divert water that conveyed through the development along Lower Springbank Road and 101 Street to a culvert crossing at Highway 8. The proposed diversion does not increase flow rates or volume to Highway 8 under normal or a major rainfall event.
Projected completion end of October 2023.
The County is working on a redesign based on landowner input located downstream of the project area. Land acquisition discussions with landowners is tentatively planned to commence mid February 2023. Regulatory applications will be submitted to Environment and Protected Areas in May 2023. Construction is pending successful land acquisition discussions, approval by Environment and Protected Areas, and an agreement with the City of Calgary to construct drainage improvements within the right of way of 101 Street.
