Town starts construction on stormwater management plan

To say sod was turned last week to signal the start of Phase 1 of construction of the Town of Claresholm’s stormwater management plan would be an understatement.
On Wednesday, Nov. 23, surrounded by earth moving equipment and large piles of dirt everywhere, Claresholm Mayor Rob Steel along with Reeve Earl Hemmaway of the Municipal District of Willow Creek, engineers and the contractor, held a sod turning  to mark the beginning of construction on the project.
Steel explained the project includes enhancements to the Eighth Street West drainage corridor, and construction of the Frog Creek Stormwater Management Facility with wetland features that will provide 175,000 cubic metres of water storage.
He said this is the biggest infrastructure project in Claresholm since 2007, when the town built a raw water line from Pine Coulee west of Stavely to Claresholm, upgraded the water treatment plant, and built a treated waterline to Granum.
