Province Set to Launch Flood Study along Pembina River

Under its Flood Hazard Identification Program, the Government of Alberta has begun a flood hazard study along a 6km stretch of the Pembina River within Lac Ste. Anne County, including the Hamlet of Sangudo.

Slated for completion in the spring of 2022, this study seeks to enhance public safety and reduce future flood damages through the identification of flood hazards. This provincial study is being co-funded through the federal National Disaster Mitigation Program. Main deliverables of this study include new hydraulic modelling and flood mapping, in addition to the following components:

  • Survey & Base Data Collection
  • Hydrologic Assessment
  • Hydraulic Modelling
  • Flood Inundation Mapping
  • Flood Hazard Mapping

The study finalization process includes municipal review and public engagement for major components, as appropriate. The goal is to provide useful tools to communities and the public as soon as possible.

A public study notice is now available online at www.floodhazard.alberta.ca. Further updates on this vital project will be posted to the County's web and social channels as they become available.
