The Oldman Dam Downstream Stakeholders Guild (O-DAM) was formed by a group of property owners who were affected by the June 2013 release of water from the Oldman Dam. This group believes that much of the damage and stress experienced as a result of the released high water volume could have been avoided through improved communication with the residents living below the dam and affected areas of Willow Creek and, with changes to flow management guidelines of the dam.

The main objectives of  O-DAM are:

 1. To speak with one voice on behalf of member owners of property located

downstream of the Oldman Dam along the Willow Creek and the Oldman

River to its confluence with the Belly River.

 

 2. To collaborate with the appropriate Ministry of the Government of Alberta regarding

the updating of policies, procedures and protocols governing the operation and

management of the Oldman Dam – with special attention given to flood control.

 

3. To collaborate with the appropriate Ministry of the Government of Alberta on the

development and implementation of an up to date comprehensive communications

system for use before and during times of high flow volumes from the Dam.

 

4. To encourage collaboration and sharing of resources between all agencies and

groups providing emergency services along or in the vicinity of the Oldman River

(from the Dam to the Belly River) to help mitigate damage from flooding caused

by increased flows from the Dam.
