People can learn about flood mitigation efforts and dam management at an open house at Dickson Dam on Wednesday.

Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development is hosting the open house from 4-7 p.m. at the dam, 20 km west of Innisfail on Hwy 54.

Those who operate the dam will be available to answer questions about operations, including procedures during flood conditions. Representatives from the provincial government’s Resilience and Mitigation Branch will also be on hand to answer questions.

A second open house will be held in southern Alberta at Oldman Dam, 13 km north of Pincher Creek, on Thursday from 4-7 p.m.

“Dickson Dam and Oldman Dam are critically important to the communities they serve,” said Robin Campbell, the minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. “These events are an opportunity for Albertans to learn more about the role these structures play in water management on the Red Deer and Oldman rivers.”
