​We'll be constructing two dry ponds, as well as performing sewer upgrades. Work is currently underway and the Ermineskin Park dry pond and the various sewer upgrades are expected to be completed by the end of the 2020 construction season. Have a closer look at a more detailed project timeline.

Project overview 

To reduce the risk of flooding during high-intensity, low-frequency rainfall events, we'll be constructing 2 dry ponds, as well as performing various sewer upgrades located in several areas of both neighborhoods.

Dry pond timeline

Construction of the Ermineskin Park dry pond began during the week of July 13, 2020.  The construction schedule is as follows:

  1. Site set-up: week of July 13, 2020
  2. Excavation: July to October 2020
  3. Drainage infrastructure installation: July to October 2020
  4. Landscaping and recreation amenities: August to October 2020

Please note: Timelines are estimates and may change based on weather and construction conditions.

The installation of the underground infrastructure to connect the dry pond in Ermineskin Park to the storm drainage system is almost completed.

Landscaping is expected to begin in mid-September and is expected to be completed by mid-October 2020. This includes the reorientation of the soccer fields.

Fencing will remain around the dry pond/sports fields for approximately one year upon completion of the landscaping.

The start of construction of the dry pond next to Steinhauer School is dependent on the approval of the land acquisition. This process is still underway with the Edmonton Public School Board. More information on the construction of this dry pond will be provided as soon as we receive approval.
