LACOMBE- The public is invited to attend a public information session for the Henner’s Pond stormwater outlet project on August 23 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. in the South County Room, Lacombe Memorial Centre (5214 50 Avenue).
Representatives from AL-Terra Engineering will discuss the project in further detail and answer any related questions.
Presentations are scheduled for 4:30 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. with question and answer sessions to follow.
The City of Lacombe is planning to construct the stormwater outlet this winter.
It will run from Henner’s Pond to William’s Slough to Wolf Creek.
In recent years, Henner’s Pond has experienced issues with bank stability and a slowly rising water level.
An outlet from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek would maintain a consistent and controlled water level.
A combination of underground storm pipe and a drainage ditch will convey stormwater from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek.
The proposed alignment from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek will use William’s Slough as a natural conveyance point.
Wetland and fisheries assessments are underway, along with the necessary regulatory applications for project approval.
It is a requirement for Alberta Environment and Parks, and the City, to control stormwater outlets and their release rates.
Alberta Environment and Parks may also restrict development in the north end of Lacombe until a proper outlet to Wolf Creek is constructed.
