Bow River

Since the 2013 floods, The City of Calgary has repaired, restored, and recovered from the devastating and costly flood damage, and continues to work hard to build flood resilience. To ensure citizens have the best suite of mitigation measures in place for their respective communities, The City has undertaken the Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment Project. Through this project, The City staff has been conducting a number of conceptual and technical studies, as well as in-depth reviews to better understand our water ways, flood risks, changes to the river patterns since the floods, and land use policies.

Now, The City is advancing further by developing a comprehensive suite of mitigation measures for Calgary. Citizens from across the city are invited to share their opinions about these plans in person, or online. Workshops and open houses are running from October 18th to November 5th, with online engagement opening October 17th. The information gathered – along with planning principles, technical engineering studies, watershed management practices, and City policy, as well as potential environmental, social and economic impacts – will inform recommendations about which mitigation scenarios The City should continue to pursue. Recommendations will be brought to Council in early 2017.
