Sustainable approach to reclamation applied at former Seebe town site

In August, TransAlta started a six-week project to reclaim the former Seebe town site near the Horseshoe and Kananaskis hydro facilities.  Although the area has been vacant for several years, at one time the hamlet of Seebe was a thriving employee settlement which had more than 350 residents with enough children to open its own school. “The history of the town site is something TransAlta employees and retirees are very proud of and we will work to preserve any historical artifacts retrieved during the work,” explained Don Terway, manager major projects.

Pocaterra Penstock Replacement

Heading: 
Pocaterra Penstock Replacement

The Pocaterra Hydro Facility (Pocaterra), located in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, is one of TransAlta's three hydro plants on the Kananaskis River. Pocaterra generates power by diverting water from the Lower Kananaskis Lake to turn a turbine.  The water is all returned to the Kananaskis River downstream of the facility.  The pipe that diverts the water, also known as a penstock, requires upgrading.
