Draft reports on engineering studies to review and assess flood mitigation options for Alberta's most flood-prone river basins.
This study updated/developed flood damage curves in select communities at risk of flooding to 2014
economic values and established adjustment indices for their use in different flood prone communities
across Alberta. It also developed a computerized model for estimating flood damages and undertook flood
damage estimates for select communities throughout Alberta.
The City of Calgary was identified as a high priority centre and selected as the pilot municipality for the updating of flood damage curves and development of a Rapid Flood Damage Assessment Model.
A benefit-cost analysis of the Glenmore Reservoir Diversion was conducted using updated flood damage curves developed through the Provincial Flood Damage Assessment Study.
A benefit-cost analysis of the McLean Creek Dry Dam was conducted using updated flood damage curves developed through the Provincial Flood Damage Assessment Study.
A benefit-cost analysis of the Springbank Off-stream Reservoir was conducted using updated flood damage curves developed through the Provincial Flood Damage Assessment Study.
Advice from the Bow River Working Group for water management in the Bow River Basin.
The environmental overview of the proposed McLean Creek Dry Dam summarizes the environmental resources and associated land uses that could be affected if this project were to be developed.
This report summarizes the recommendations from Deltares on Elbow River flood mitigation.
This study review two major projects proposed for the Elbow River and provides a recommendation on which project to take forward to construction-ready status.
This study reviewed two key flood mitigation reports (from AECOM and Worley Parson) and provides an evaluation of flood mitigation alternatives for High River.
River Forecast Centre partners were engaged in discussions regarding the 2013 floods events in order to gain a better understanding of what occurred in each community, how each group responded, and what they have learned.
This report examines the background, approach, methods and summary of the performance measures of several flood forecast centres in North America, Europe and South Pacific to help assess the flood forecasting program in Alberta.
A pilot project was undertaken in the Bow River Basin to consider the extent to which strategies from the Dutch Room for the River program could be adapted and applied here in Alberta.
This study examines the uncertainties in weather forecasting and proposes a method the River Forecast Centre can use to manage those uncertainties when modeling rainfall scenarios and issuing flood advisories.
