CALGARY 2012: Elbow and Bow RIVER Water Management

The Geological Time Scale of the Elbow and the Bow Rivers in Calgary

 

There could be a project in Calgary, with the consulting of professional engineers:

 

For the reconstruction of the Elbow and the Bow Rivers as commercial waterways that would be engineered to the scale and the depth of the old world (EUROPEAN) river canals.

 

The purpose of this would be for the proper rivers and water management in the future generations of Calgarians so that they will have the engineering in place for dealing with the melting of the Bow Valley Corridor Glaciers on an advanced geological scale of time.

 

With the Bow Valley Corridor water conservation and the engineering of the Elbow and the Bow River in place for the next 50 - 100 years, as a long term plan, the rivers and water management plan will enable the rivers to withhold the extra capacity of the last Bow Valley Corridor Geological Ice Age that is now completely melting.

 

Realizing this will be the first step towards a comprehensive dialogue on how the Elbow and Bow River Waterway Systems should be managed for the future generations of Calgarians.

 

There would essentially be two new waterways reconstructed and re-engineered within both of the Calgary river systems for handling the increased water flow and the increased water capacity of the Bow Valley Corridor Glacier Ice rivers and glaciated frozen ice.

 

The depth and the re - engineering of both Calgary Rivers as old world waterway canals would also provide hundreds of years of valuable tourism opportunities on the waterway into Southern Alberta on a Working River System.

 

The Time to Start Re - Engineering the Calgary River Systems is becoming a lost commodity of time that will become an increasing water management problem without the proper management of,

 

The ELBOW and THE BOW RIVER in CALGARY as the COLLECTIVE WATER RESOURCE for all people in CALGARY.
