Henner’s Pond Stormwater Outlet to Wolf Creek
1. (Bright green lines/dash): Proposed route of the underground storm pipe and drainage ditch to convey stormwater from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek.
This winter, the City of Lacombe is planning to construct a stormwater outlet from Henner’s Pond to William’s Slough to Wolf Creek.
In recent years, Henner’s Pond has experienced issues with bank stability and a slowly rising water level. An outlet from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek would maintain a consistent and controlled water level.
It is a requirement for Alberta Environment and Parks, and the City, to control stormwater outlets and their release rates. Alberta Environment and Parks may also restrict development in the north end of Lacombe until a proper outlet to Wolf Creek is constructed.
A combination of underground storm pipe and a drainage ditch will convey stormwater from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek. The proposed alignment from Henner’s Pond to Wolf Creek will use William’s Slough as a natural conveyance point.
Wetland and fisheries assessments are underway, along with the necessary regulatory applications for project approval. Negotiations for temporary workspace and permanent land easement agreements are underway.
