With the dam set to expire as a sediment pond, RDNO focused on decommissioning the facility and returning the creek to a natural state.
This project began as other flood mapping projects do: the existing flood maps were from 1982 and the District of Kitimat knew that they required an update.
McElhanney used hydraulic modeling to complete flood modeling and mapping of the Bow River in Canmore, Alberta.
McElhanney assists BC MoTI with river and hydrotechnical engineering services for various bridge, culverts, and bank stabilization projects on 40+ sites.
McElhanney was tasked with designing the Anderson Creek fishway to allow salmon to bypass a bridge apron that has deteriorated into a 3m concrete weir.
McElhanney is providing a wide array of services for this project including structural, civil, and hydrological engineering, environmental, visualization, and arborist services. McElhanney developed the images to help illustrate the project concept.
In December, 2007 the City of Prince George experienced a rapid cold snap which resulted in an ice jam on the Nechako River. A 66-day long local state of emergency was declared and over 100 residents were evacuated from their homes.
