Impacts from dry pond construction
About 60% of the construction for the overall project was completed in 2020, including the Ermineskin Park dry pond and the sewer upgrades in both Ermineskin and Steinhauer.
The full benefits of the project will not be achieved until the Steinhauer Park dry pond, the remaining sewer upgrades (dry pond connections), and the storm system is fully operational in 2021.
Steinhauer Park dry pond
The construction for the Steinhauer Park dry pond will require parking restrictions along 32A Avenue west of 108 Street for approximately 100 meters to allow for adequate visibility and turning of the construction equipment.
While school is in session, we kindly ask that parents find alternate parking for student drop off and pick up.
All sidewalks will be maintained during construction. Flag personnel will be onsite to assist pedestrians during construction activities.
No trees are expected to be removed as part of construction in the dry pond area in Steinhauer Park; however, there will be trees that need to be hoarded to protect them while construction activities are underway.
In order to connect the Steinhauer Park dry pond to the drainage system, there will be three locations that will require sewer upgrades. The locations and estimated timelines are:
June 29 to end of August
Early-July to end of August
Early July to end of August
Please note: Timelines are estimates and may change based on weather and construction conditions.
The majority of the work will be open trench excavation for the dry pond connections. Residents may experience general noise from the construction equipment used for material delivery, excavation, soil removal and surface restoration.
Water Infrastructure Modifications
EPCOR Water’s contractor will be completing open trench water system modifications in the area in relation to EPCOR Drainage’s construction. In addition to the activities associated with open trench excavation, customers affected by the water infrastructure modifications may require temporary water service while construction is in progress. You will receive a notice directly from EPCOR Water’s contractor if your property’s water service is impacted.
