The land along Beach Street East, in the Summer Village of Rochon Sands, is at risk of flooding during extreme weather conditions when lake levels are high. The Alberta Government has worked with the Summer Village of Rochon Sands to explore options that could help to mitigate this flood risk. In 2012, when the lake water level was very high, meetings were held with landowners and it was agreed that mitigation measures and emergency access is required. This year the project will resume, with the aim to find a permanent solution that reflects and addresses community concerns while protecting properties from the potential flood risk.
