2023 Dam Safety Program for Simonette Water Reservoir

M.D. of Greenview No. 16, Alberta | i3 Energy Canada Ltd.

Our client inherited the Simonette Water Reservoir as part of their Simonette asset acquisition. This above-ground pond stores fresh water for industrial processes. A portion of the perimeter berms containing the reservoir falls under the definition of a dam per Alberta Regulation and is therefore subject to provincial dam safety regulations. i3 Energy Canada Ltd. (i3 Energy) approached Journey Engineering (Journey) for guidance to attain regulatory compliance for the dam at Simonette Water Reservoir.
