Virtual information centre
The Bow River Reservoir Options virtual information centre was available from June 16 to June 30, 2021.
The virtual centre featured information boards, a video and reports to help people learn more about the initiative and the feasibility study. It also included opportunities to share input on the reservoir options. This information is available under Get Informed – Phase 2 – Round one engagement.
Virtual live sessions
Participants were able to share feedback and ask questions during virtual sessions held June 22, 24 and 26, 2021.
Your feedback will help us carefully review the 3 proposed options for reducing the effects of flooding and drought along the Bow River and will be considered in any decision to move forward with one of the options.
If one of the options is chosen to move forward, it would proceed to the engineering and regulatory approval process.
We welcome commentary about government policies and programs, however we will not tolerate comments that are offensive to an individual or an organization, rude or harassing in tone, or abusive to government staff. For more information, see our comment policy.
