The City of Grande Prairie retained SNC-Lavalin Inc. to carry out an independent Dam Safety Review (DSR) for the Bear River Control Structure. In addition to the DSR, the City requested that SNC-Lavalin complete the following during this project:

  • Conduct a flood inundation study to support the incremental consequence classification of the facility;
  • Develop an Operation, Maintenance, and Surveillance (OMS) Manual for the facility, along with preparing an Annual Inspection form to allow for routine inspection by the City staff; and
  • Develop an Emergency Preparedness Plan and an Emergency Response Plan and Flood Action Plan.

Please note: This is a draft report and the final version of the Bear River Dam Safety Review is expected in March/April 2021.
