Pine Lake Project

Written public consultation 

A written public consultation regarding the Pine Lake project is currently underway until midnight on May 20, 2022.
Send us your feedback on the future of the Pine Lake dam and Cameron culvert.

In 2014, the Pine Lake dam failed due to a piping fault under the foundation.
In April 2021, the estimated cost to replace the dam was $1 050 000.
This year, with 90% of the design completed, estimated costs have risen to $1 904 000.

This increase is due to:
• Climate change: the dam needs to be larger than initially planned to manage the 1 in 100-year rain falls;
• The design of the dam reduces human intervention and, by extension, the risk of human error;
• Installation of a larger or a second culvert under Cameron – to act as an overflow pipe during high volume periods.
Consult the presentation below for a list of the advantages and disadvantages of replacing the dam.

An alternate option is to remove the dam and replace the culvert under Cameron. Consult the presentation below for a list of the advantages and disadvantages of this second option.
The engineering consulting firm EXP will provide us with the costs of this second option.

We have opened up a public consultation period for residents to let Council know their thoughts about Pine Lake and which of the two options outlined is preferred.
Residents can participate in this public consultation by completing and submitting the form below by midnight, May 20th.

The public written consultation period is now over. We invite you to subscribe to our email newsletter to receive updates on this project.
