The Defiance Creek dam demolition plan involved full removal of the dam. MSR Solutions took into consideration the erosion concerns and the limited time window for the demolition works.
MSR Solutions proposed an interim solution to convert the Defiance Creek dam to a compound weir. This would allow for monitoring of debris around the channel. Monitoring of the weir continues until the weir is consolidated to form part of the channel. There is also a possibility of removal the following year (2019).
The construction works for the interim solution were completed successfully in September 2018. The interim approach was fully supported by FLNRORD. The project was completed on time and on budget.
