TransAlta has resumed work on the penstock replacement in the Canyon Campground area of Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. The penstock, constructed in 1955, is leaking at numerous locations along its 1.37 km stretch. The new steel penstock will be buried.
As a result of the project construction, the penstock and surrounding area, including Canyon Campground, will be closed to the public for the duration of the 2012 season. See Kananaskis Trail Report for details.
