In February 2009, Sturgeon County conducted a study on the level of fire protection currently provided to the Sturgeon Valley area, and to make recommendations to provide protection similar to that provided in urban municipalities. It's part of a larger initiative that includes utility servicing updates, land use planning and transportation. The purpose of this study is to provide the basis for upgrading the municipal water supply system such that the area is adequately protected from fires.
The overall scope of this study is to:
- Determine the required protection of the area based on current standards and the types of existing development within the Valley.
- Determine the adequacy of the existing potable water distribution system for providing that protection.
- Determine required improvements in the system and develop implementation sequencing and cost estimates.
