NORTH RED DEER REGIONAL WASTEWATER SYSTEM
The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission (NRDRWWSC) is a wastewater transmission system connecting Lacombe, Blackfalds and Lacombe County to the regional wastewater treatment facility located in Red Deer.
This $71 million crucial infrastructure project began construction in 2017 and was completed in 2018.
The line includes the construction of approximately 28 kilometers of wastewater pipeline; regional lift stations in Lacombe and Blackfalds; and an odour management facility in Red Deer.
Additionally, odour management strategies have been implemented at both lift stations and the line features air release points along the pipeline.
The commission consists of the City of Lacombe, the Town of Blackfalds, and Lacombe County. These partner municipalities initially undertook this project to meet new Federal and Provincial regulatory guidelines for wastewater treatment.
After exploring all other options, the regional system was the most economical option available, with 90 percent of construction costs covered by grant funding.
This high-priority infrastructure project yielded immediate economic benefits in terms of employment during construction. As we advance, it provides for much-needed long-term sustainability in addressing the region’s critical wastewater needs.
