Snake Lake Reservoir Expansion Project

The Eastern Irrigation District is proposing to expand the Snake Lake Reservoir located approximately 24 kilometres northwest of Brooks, Alberta. As proposed, the Snake Lake Reservoir Expansion Project would increase the reservoir's water storage capacity by approximately 67.97 million cubic metres and expand the footprint of the flood area by approximately 779 hectares. The project is proposed to support the irrigation of lands that currently have no or limited reservoir support within the district.
