Bow River Repair Plans: A Presentation from the City

As many in Montgomery probably know, in the June flood we lost a LOT of the hillside along the Bow, from Bowmont Park, down along the back side of 52nd Street, down to the bridges.  The city has been studying the newly created cliffs and beach and is developing a plan to bring stability to the area and to prevent further erosion, should water levels rise like that again.  Click on the link to see a presentation from the city outlining what happened and what they know so far.  It is expected that repairs to the banks will start in October.  Montgomery Bow Bank Erosion and Repair Strategy Presentation
