Funding confirmed for flood-prevention projects in Edmonton, northern Alberta

  Funding confirmed for flood-prevention projects in Edmonton, northern Alberta The provincial government will put $5 million toward protecting the city’s water treatment facilities from high flows on the North Saskatchewan River. The Edmonton projects will relocate critical equipment above predicted flood levels so the Rossdale and E.L. Smith facilities, which provide drinking water to more than one million people throughout the region, can continue operating safely during a flood event, according to a government news release. Funding for these projects is provided through the Alberta Community Resilience Program.
