About the Project

In the coming months, Sturgeon County staff will be contacting residents with backlot drainage easements on file. Staff will deliver information handouts about backlot swale drainage easements and schedule inspections with property owners. 

Subdivisions in the 2021 assessment include:

  • Upper Manor Point I, II and III
  • The Banks of Sturgeon Valley
  • Pinnacle Ridge

This project is currently in the investigation phase. The property inspection will be evaluating the drainage easement and its current state. The process will include photographs of the easement, notes taken by staff and survey data. 

After inspections are complete, review notifications will be sent out to homeowners with the results of the assessment. Included in this notification will be whether there is a requirement for additional investigation, a notice of intent to perform maintenance or if there are obstructions within the easement that pose a concern.
