Spring 2016 Update on Harmony Lake & Construction

Summer is coming. As Springbank’s first lake community, we get a lot of questions about the lake. How is it being built? When is it opening? Is it sustainable?

We will resume filling the lake next month (May) and expect this process to take approximately 3 to 4 months. Harmony has a direct intake line into the nearby Bow River, and this lake doubles as the reservoir for Harmony’s drinking and irrigation water. During this summer you will see our development team designing the shoreline landscaping- and our plan is to produce a temporary beach area for visitors to get a taste of lake life in Springbank.

Our water treatment facility is well through construction, and we anticipate a fall completion. Our showhomes and Discovery Centre are operating with an interim potable water system that is servicing the community seamlessly.

Construction will begin on the first resident homes in Harmony, and as well Paintbrush Park will see completion with installation of the playground equipment and landscaping. You will also notice the landscaping completed last year throughout the community start to grow and beautify the common areas of Harmony.

Stop by the Discovery Centre to learn about our world class water management system, water treatment facilities, and wetland strategy.
