Red Deer County upgrading storm water system

Red Deer County will spend $1.57 million to upgrade the storm water system in Gasoline Alley to allow for more development.

Red Deer County will spend $1.57 million to upgrade the storm water system in Gasoline Alley to allow for more development.

A storm water management study was done from 2012 to 2013 to determine what needed to be done to make way for the Liberty subdivision in Gasoline Alley. It was decided to create additional water storage capacity by joining the storm water pond by the Memorial Garden to a similar water runoff storage area near Costco.

Linking the retention ponds will add 20,000 cubic metres of additional water storage to cope with a one-in-100-year flood.

Urban Dirtworks was awarded the tender for the project with a low bid of $1,572,003.

The cost of the storm water project will be recouped through the levies charged to developers to pay for necessary infrastructure upgrades as areas are built out.
