Alberta : Money for flood prevention

Premier Dave Hancock and Mayor Naheed Nenshi have provided an update on flood recovery and mitigation efforts.

It’s part of the feel-good tour of 2014 as officials try to reassure members of the public on the work taking place on short-term flood mitigation projects.

“We are committed to improving Alberta’s resilience when faced with floods and drought by providing the resources needed to protect our vulnerable communities,” Robin Campbell, Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development said.

“Our aim is to put effective mitigation solutions in place while respecting taxpayers’ dollars.”

The cost-share program will direct $325 million to municipalities over the next three years for projects such as berms, dykes, and riverbank stabilization.

Eligible projects may either protect municipal infrastructure such as public buildings, roads, or wastewater systems, enhance public safety, or improve evacuation times.

The grants will cover 90 per cent of project costs up to $3 million and 70 per cent of costs in excess of $3 million.
