North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System recognized as ‘Project of the Year’

Completed on time and on budget, it earned an APWA award

The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System has earned a provincial award.

It was chosen as the American Public Works Association’s Alberta chapter’s project of the year, for projects more than $10 million.

The award was given out at the association’s conference and trade show in Red Deer last week.

“I was pleased to accept this award on behalf of the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission,” said chair Ken Wigmore.

“Completed on time and on budget, the wastewater transmission system is a great, forward-thinking project that ensures our members have access to safe, reliable and effective waste water treatment services for the foreseeable future,” he added.

Designed by Stantec, the project used innovative approaches and technologies to provide a regional wastewater system for 25,000 residents living in central Alberta. It was also designed to protect the sensitive watershed that supplies drinking water for 150,000 Albertans.

Commissioned in April 2018, the system pumps wastewater from a series of smaller communities to a regional treatment plant in Red Deer. The project consists of a 28-kilometre pipeline, an odour management facility and two major lift stations.
