Mackenzie County recognizes when undertaking projects, the County will require additional working space where the existing right of way is not adequate to allow for the rehabilitation and/or construction.


As outlined in PW041: Backsloping Policy, in the event that the County identifies an area requiring backsloping on private property, the landowner will enter into an agreement with the County for the provision of backsloping. The County may consider eligible costs such as tree removal, crop damage, grass seeding, and fence removal/replacement. A physical site inspection is carried out by County staff and property owner to identify any potential issues.
