Kelly Creek Dam Information

The Kelly Creek Dam was originally built in the late 1940s (exact date unknown) to provide water service to the Village of Fruitvale. Upgrades to the dam were undertaken in 1982 to remediate degradation that had previously occurred to the concrete from freeze/thaw action and to increase the reservoir storage capacity.  The Kelly Creek Dam has an intake structure which allows operators to control water supply from Kelly Creek, which flows from the upland slopes of Mount Kelly, Stott Peak and several un-named ridges.  The watershed is primarily private managed forestland that is subject to the Private Managed Forest Land Act.  The Kelly Creek intake discharges into the reservoir which feeds the water treatment plant (WTP) intake structure. The intake structure, reservoir, WTP intake, dam and WTP are located within the same secured (fenced) facility.
Kelly Creek Dam is a concrete gravity dam and has a “Significant” Consequence Classification rating under the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, Water Management Branch File No. D350120-00 dam failure consequences classification criteria.
