Vinci Infrastructure Canada oficially launched the construction of the Springbank Off-stream Reservoir on Apr. 18 and there are visible signs of the progress made since then.

The diversion channel is being roughed in and to the northeast, there's an outline of where the dam will be located on the former ranch of Ed Copithrone.

According to the province, Vinci provided the lowest bid of $379 million. All in, it's a $774 million project that's expected to be partially operational by 2024 and completed constructed by 2025.
