Waterways Slope Stability and the Next Steps

The Waterways slope stability assessment is top priority for the Wood Buffalo Recovery Committee and Recovery Task Force.

At its public meeting on March 8th, regarding slope stability of the Waterways – the WBRC directed the RTF to complete an analysis of the community feedback received.

In addition, they asked for a review of technical aspects of the Waterways slope stability assessment and to identify financial issues with each of the options identified and report back with recommendations for the WBRC’s consideration

Recommendations made by the WBRC would then go to Council for any decision or direction on next steps.

Chair of the WBRC, Jeanette Bancarz says they wanted to gather community input before making any final decisions.

“In our face to face conversations, ‘Here for You’ public information sessions and at our last WBRC meeting we heard from our neighbours in Waterways that they wanted to us to make this a priority but also to gather the best information possible and to do this right,” Bancarz said.

“We understand any recommendation that comes forward may have an impact on rebuilding in Waterways and we are committed to keeping the community informed as we work together in recovery.”
