Harlow Overland Flow Protection Strategy is designed to protect the Harlow residential community from overland flooding during high flow events on the South Saskatchewan River. Phase 1 of the project requires the construction of 750m of earthen dyke which ranges in height from 1.5 to 4.5m. Phase 2 of the project is approximately 450m in length. The height of the dyke is based on the river elevation during a 1 in 100 year event (5480m3/s) plus an additional metre of freeboard. This additional height protects from flows greater than the 1 in 200 year event (6260 m3/s).
