Spring Creek dam com­plete

Moose Jaw Express.com - - Front Page -

Crews have fin­ished al­most two weeks of work re­build­ing the earth dam at Spring Creek and Ninth Av­enue North­west. The new dam set close to the road is much higher and will hold wa­ter back from floods when the creek runs over. The smaller dam and walk­way across the creek have been breached twice in four years to al­low flood­ing wa­ters through. The breaches broke the walk­ing path across the Creek con­nect­ing the VLA side of the creek. Now that both sides are again con­nected, walk­ers and hik­ers can ac­cess the north side to view trees, shrubs and wildlife in the park. A sec­ond phase of the project will in­volve a new larger cul­vert un­der the Ninth Av­enue road to the eastern creek­side.
