Decalta Drive Road Repairs
For two weeks beginning October 14, crews will be working to complete major road repairs on Decalta Drive from Imperial Drive to Okalta Drive.
Minor traffic delays may be experienced. Please obey all posted signage and be cautious of crews working on the road.
Work is being done to improve the gravel standard of the road before winter. Permanent paving is expected to be undertaken in 2015 after the completion of flood mitigation work which requires the passage of heavy loads and equipment.
Hydrant Flushing and Waterline Maintenance
Due to water restrictions, in the Spring of 2014, we were unable to conduct the Town of Turner Valley’s annual hydrant flushing. This is a routine procedure that is carried out as a preventative maintenance check and balance, as well as to ensure we are maintaining the integrity of the water distribution system thus allowing us to continue to deliver the highest quality water possible to our customers. Although it may appear that this system check is a waste of a precious commodity, our water, it is the most accurate process to monitor the proper operation of hydrants, adequate flow and pressure in our distribution lines. As well, it removes sediment and rids pipelines of stagnant water that ensures water clarity is maintained within the pipes.
As a result of the line flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air which does not affect the safety of the water. If you do experience this, simply clear the pipes in your home by running all water faucets for a period of 3-5 minutes.
We encourage all of our customers to adopt the same philosophy of water line preventive maintenance in your own homes. It is recommended that your home water heater be drained and flushed on a regular basis, according to manufacturers’ recommendations, in order to keep it working effectively and efficiently.
This procedure will be conducted in October, 2014 whenever weather deems it suitable. In order to conduct this process, our Chief Administrative Officer Barry Williamson will sign off on a water permit allowing this work to be conducted by our water plant personnel.

Turner Valley Economic Development Plan
- New Directions -
The Town of Turner Valley has completed the final draft of its economic development plan, focusing on creating a vision for Turner Valley to follow as it strives to improve investment and community development options. The plan will help guide the community in its future planning.
We are very fortunate that the Province of Alberta has allowed us to pursue the exciting opportunity of developing this Town of Turner Valley Economic Development Plan – New Directions by providing funding through the Rural Community Adaptation Program.
In addition to establishing a new pathway for the Town of Turner Valley, the plan also addresses two major areas of interest in detail; the need to optimize use of municipal downtown land to offer expansion areas for commercial growth opportunities and the need to develop sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities.
To accommodate this, consideration was given to the redevelopment of the east side of Main Street which is the current location of one ball diamond and a campground with unserviced lots. This coincided with strong community desire to relocate both the campground and the ball diamond. Relocation plans allow for the creation of a recreation node combining both campground and ball diamond activities adjacent to an area zoned to provide service support to recreation vehicles.
Turner Valley Council invites comments about the plan from the public, municipal neighbours and project stakeholders. Comments can be forwarded to email@example.com
