This flood resiliency project includes bank reinforcement and revegetation; in-stream construction of stream barbs (also known as groins) to train the creek away from the banks; and engineered log-jams. The project will also reconstruct the pathway further away from the creek to limit icing issues and future flood damage.
Jumpingpound creek between the neighborhoods of Crawford Ranche and Bow Meadows and between George Fox Trail and the Bow River.
Construction commenced: April 2022
Estimated completion: Fall 2022
Total project budget: $1.2M
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT BENEFIT THE COMMUNITY?
The project will improve the resilience of this reach of Jumpingpound creek, protecting riparian areas and Town parks from erosion. The realigned pathway will be less prone to icing and flooding during rain and snow melt events.
Maintenance of parks and pathways, providing community connectivity.
