Whitewater Park Committee (WPC) is planning to build a water park and a hydro power plant in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
The project involves construction of a recreational water park and a 2.8 to 8.4MW hydro power plant at one location. It includes the construction of Whitewater rapids course and Shallow areas for wading and passive recreation.
The project also includes the construction of a hydro generation facility, a recreational park with rafting, tubing, kayaking, fishing, wading, swimming, bird watching, improved fish habitat and riparian areas, and other other related infrastructure.
The City of Saskatoon released US$300,000 to explore the hydro component of the studies. The Province of Saskatchewan, through the Ministry of Recreation and Tourism, contributed US$100,000 to study the water park component of the project.
Knight Piesold Engineering and S20 Engineering have been awarded a contract to carry out baseline environmental and pre-feasibility engineering studies for the project. These studies will provide a better understanding of the actual design, projected costs, feasibility of hydro-electric power generation and environmental impacts.
In September 2011, Study work completed and reports were submitted to Saskatoon City Council.
In September 2012, the Ketchum City Council has approved master plan for park that would run along 457.2m of the Big Wood River near Hulen Meadows just north of Ketchum. Approval for the power plant is yet to be secured.
On October 16, 2014, project was placed on hold due to financial constraints.
However, in April 2015, five private developers approached the council to develop the project.
On April 28, 2015, a public hearing was held, and the council has agreed to fund for the further studies of the project.
Planning activities are underway.
