McArthur Park Outlet

Lac La Biche County, Alberta

As part of an ongoing engineering services contract to rehabilitate its existing stormwater outfalls, the County of Lac La Biche engaged V3 to assess options for relocating an outfall placed in the centre of the popular McArthur Park beach area of Lac la Biche. Because the existing stormwater outfall acted as a barrier to recreational uses, V3 was tasked with identifying alternatives and costs for relocating the outfall to maximize beach space. After exploring several relocation options and completing cost/value evaluations, V3 recommended a redesign of the existing outfall that incorporated enhanced aesthetic features and created a functional public space with greater accessibility and programming opportunities.
