Siksika Bow River Hazard Study

As part of the Flood Hazard Identification Program, Alberta Environment and Parks have hired Golder Associates (Golder) to undertake the Siksika Bow River Hazard Study. The goal of the Siksika Bow River Hazard Study, and the Flood Hazard Identification Program, is to help reduce future flood damages and increase public safety for all Albertans.

To gather information for the Siksika Bow River Hazard Study, Golder survey crews will be working along 215 km of the Bow River downstream of the Highwood River confluence. Survey crews will be collecting river channel and ground elevation data to support the creation of a new river hydraulic model, flood inundation mapping, and flood hazard mapping. The survey is expected to begin in September 2017, and carry on through to the end of November 2017.
