High River Bank Protection Project

We want to hear from you!

In summer/fall 2023, work will begin to protect dikes on the Highwood River that are prone to erosion during high water events (locations are on a map in the link below).​

"Bank Armouring" involves the installation of rip-rap from the top of the dike to the toe that will self-launch to protect any eroded areas. ​

Work will take 2-3 months to complete & will occur on Town or Alberta Environment & Parks property. Some access to private property may be required. ​

Before work begins, we invite residents can ask questions about work.​

Visit: ​

Questions will be taken from March 13-31, 2023.​
