Now that the Wallaceville area east of Centre Street has been fully restored, the Government of Alberta, and the Town of High River, is asking residents to be respectful of the area.

As part of the Town's overall flood mitigation program, Wallaceville has been returned to it's undeveloped state with new topsoil and seed.

The area will soon be signed and fenced off by the Alberta Government, prohibiting use of the area until the grass is fully established.

The Town says, all vehicles and illegal dumping of any kind are strictly prohibited.

In the spring, reclamators will return to finalize grading, topsoil, and seed on the west side of Centre Street.
