The project  Bow Basin Water Management Options is a Conceptual Assessment for a new dam at either the Glenbow Ranch or Morley Indian Reserve or the option to expand Ghost Reservoir.

Bow River Trout Foundation has expressed our concerns to the Government of Alberta with new dam construction on the Bow River  Bow River Water Management Plan.
