Built in 1932, with a cost of $3.8 million, the dam controls the downstream flow of the Elbow River, thus allowing the city to develop property near the river's banks with less risk of flooding.The reservoir has a water mirror of 3.84 km2 and a drainage basin of 1,210 km2.In 2014, the city announced plans to upgrade the dam at a cost of $81 million.
