Stormwater Integrated Resource Plan (SIRP)
The risk weightings and plan policies for Edmonton’s nationally-recognized flood protection plan were made based on the public’s values and priorities for flood protection, which were evaluated through an award-winning research program.
Dry pond developments in Edmonton
We engaged with the community throughout the various stages of development for dry ponds across the City of Edmonton. Engagement ranged from communications to consultation, and focused on the role of dry ponds, community input on recreation amenity changes, conceptual designs, final site design selection, identifying and addressing construction impacts, and timelines. Typically, at any one time, six dry ponds are in development.
E.L. Smith Solar Farm Project
The design for a new 12 MW solar farm was improved based on community input over a three-year period, including changes to the site footprint, the addition of trail easements to improve public access, modifications to plans to naturalize former pasture land, and long-term protocols for Indigenous monitoring and access.
