Explosion Recovery

The Town has issued a Road Use Permit for the Bow River Seniors Lodge project for Monday, July 6 for one task only. The work is for backfilling and asphalt surfacing to restore the road which may make ongoing clean up and construction of your home a bit easier. The permit is for this work only and no excavation work is permitted. Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) has given approval for this backfilling work. The permit expires at 18:00hrs on Monday, July 6. The OH&S investigation is still ongoing.


Anyone who has damage to their home or is nervous about the possible impact of the explosion on their home should contact their insurance company before beginning any work.
