Update: The project is now complete, as of July 20, 2020.
September 2019 (original post)
Due to the age and condition of the present seawall it had become apparent that we needed to replace (rather than repair) the structure and docks.
This Waterfront Project will include a new seawall,new aluminum docks,and a larger asphalt walkway/sitting area.
The construction will be done in two stages. Beginning September 30th the first stage of construction will begin with removal of the docks and placement of the sheet pile wall. In the Spring of 2020 the new docks will be installed. We envision this project to be complete before June 2020.
Please note - Boating equipment will not be available for rent during construction.

Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease
Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed whirling disease,a fish disease that affects salmonoids,in Johnson Lake in Banff National Park.
boaters and recreational water users can help reduce the risk of spreading whirling disease. It can be transmitted through equipment used for swimming,paddling,boating,water pumping,and fishing,or through infected fish and fish parts. Never move live fish from one body of water to another (that is illegal in Alberta).
Please ensure that you clean and dry all equipment that came into contact with water and eliminate all water from equipment before transporting.
Thank you - LBHA
