Keyano College Implements a Short-term Flood Mitigation Solution

Keyano College had approximately $55 million in property damages resulting from the flood that occurred in the spring of 2020. Flood restoration of critical infrastructure was completed by mid-August 2020, with some remediation still ongoing. As a result, Keyano College has not been able to secure overland flood insurance coverage and has been working with its partners to develop a plan to mitigate risk from future flood events.

“Keyano College is being proactive in our approach to avoid this level of devastation from occurring again. Utilizing a Tiger Dam system affords protection of critical infrastructure and gives the College time to develop a permanent flood mitigation solution,” said Tracy Boyde, Vice President, Infrastructure & CIO.

“The Tiger Dam system will be deployed in April and timed with the river break-up. The College will conduct an annual exercise of deployment as part of our emergency preparedness,” said Dale Mountain, Interim President & CEO.
