Town of Moosehorn Flood Protection System

Year: 2017

Value of Contract:  $1.3 million

Scope of Work:   After years of flooding problems, the town of Moosehorn has finally received some much needed protection from the high water levels that frequently plagued the community.  A tender was put out and Fast Brothers was contracted to build over three kilometers of new ring dike on the east side of the town.  The work also included two water retention  excavations, culvert and flood gate installations and site revegetation.  Altogether the project involved moving over 110,000 cubic meters of material.  What did Municipality Reeve Clifford Halaburda have to say about the project?  "Over the years there's been a lot of flooding around the village of Moosehorn, it's really been a problem," he explains. "It's a job, once completed, it'll be good forever."
