NORTH RED DEER REGIONAL WASTEWATER SYSTEM
The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission (NRDRWWSC) is pleased to announce the construction of a wastewater transmission system connecting Lacombe, Blackfalds and Lacombe County to the regional wastewater treatment facility in Red Deer.
This crucial infrastructure project is expected to cost $71 million. Construction begins in spring 2017 and is scheduled for completion on March 31, 2018.
It includes the construction of approximately 28 kilometres of wastewater pipeline, regional lift stations in Lacombe and Blackfalds, and an odour management facility in Red Deer. Odour management strategies will also be implemented at both lift stations and at air release points along the pipeline.
The NRDRWWSC consists of the City of Lacombe, Town of Blackfalds, and Lacombe County. The partner municipalities undertook this project based on the need to meet the new Federal and Provincial regulatory guidelines for wastewater treatment. After exploring all other options, the regional system was found to be the most economical option available — 90 percent of construction costs will be covered by grant funding.
This high-priority infrastructure project will yield immediate economic benefits in terms of employment during construction, and provides for much-needed long-term sustainability in addressing the region’s critical wastewater needs.
