Red Deer River users are forewarned that some areas of the river near the CPR Bridge may be closed for a training exercise on Thursday.

The City’s Environmental Services and Emergency Services staff are teaming up for a joint Spill Response training exercise and river users can expect potential closures or delays.

The training, which is scheduled for Thursday, July 26 between 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., will involve use of river booms in multiple locations as staff run through a training exercise meant to simulate a spill upstream of or within the city.

Staff will be on site and upstream of the training location to ensure river users are aware of any closures or potential hazards.

The training schedule is subject to weather conditions and may be subject to change.
