Turner Valley is nestled in the lap of the Rockies, 35 minutes southwest of Calgary. The community reflects the essence of small town values – offering economic opportunity in tandem with outdoor recreation. Just minutes from Kananaskis Country, the area calls to those with an adventurous spirit and a desire to breathe the mountain fresh air of the foothills.
Get back to nature in Turner Valley.
Commencing February 24, 2014, Shawne Excavating Ltd. and their subcontractors will be mobilizing heavy equipment that will be utilized for the construction of the Towns Potable Water Infiltration Gallery.
The location of this construction is located South East of Calkins Place, and adjacent to the Sheep River. Please be advised that this area will be posted as a construction zone and therefore we ask our citizens to keep clear of this area for safety reasons.
Also being transported into this area is very large blast rock that will be used to armor the future river dyke which is designed to protect the Towns new infrastructure.
These construction projects are anticipated to be completed by early June 2014.
Inquiries with regards to the Towns construction projects can be directed to Andy Pfeifer, R.E.T., A.Sc.T. Director of Engineering & Municipal Operations.

FIRE BAN - The Fire Ban within the Town of Turner Valley remains in effect due to the water restrictions that are also still in place. Typical residential fire flows can reach upwards of 6800 litres per minute or in excess of 700 000 litres over the event. This would significantly impact our current limited water situation. Until the Town is in a positive water flow situation the Fire Ban will remain in effect.
