Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP)

The City's sanitary sewer collection system and Wastewater Treatment Plant was designed for, and now has, a contributing population of approximately 20,000 people. The collection system flows to the South Lift Station at the south end of the City and then flows to the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant, approximately 1.5 km to the southeast.

With the existing facilities close to capacity, an expansion is required to accommodate the additional flows and loads. A contributing population approximately 30,000 people is currently forecast for around 2035. Additionally, our Alberta Environment and Protection (AEP) approval includes requirements for system upgrades to accommodate both the projected population growth and to achieve significantly increased treatment standards to reduce the impact on the receiving waters.

The proposed $42.2 million upgrades are intended to meet requirements for additional capacity and the need for higher treatment standards driven by regulations. This upgraded plant will provide cleaner water back into the watershed and give our community room to grow.
