Alberta Sustainable Resource Development indicated they would like to see a design and restoration plan from the developer, then they would look at providing a field order to allow work to commence.

The developer have asked their engineer for a scope of work from their specialist for investigation, design and specifications related to getting approval of the work through SRD to their satisfaction. Any construction activities would be separate and based on output of investigation and SRD acceptance of design.

Marina Walls

The east wall and west walls are anticipated to be moved to the property line of the lots and will require consent from landowners. A reduction of the height of the walls is being considered

Grading Design

We will be proceeding with grading and drainage. We will designing to provide curb and gutter compared to maintaining ditch drainage. The east cul-de-sac was constructed quite high compared to design and grading it to drain will require a fair bit of earthworks through all the lots 57 through 63 in order to drain the r/w to the main road as required in the original plans. Since existing utilities are in place – we have to be careful about reducing cover over pipes although it does appear we have some room to work.

Sewer Inspection

The video inspection has been completed with a report to follow.

Water System Pressure Test

We have been contacting landowners with water services with respect to access to open private valves to protect trailers and buildings should their service valves not hold the pressure.

We have tentatively lined up the test for the first or second week of August.


The excess gravel, rock and pipe has been cleaned up on the MR lot east of the Marina. We have targeted mowing every other week. We are working on placing waste disposal bins at Buffalo View Estates in the first or second week of August (residential waste only-no construction waste)
