The growth corridor between Olds, Alberta, and Red Deer, Alberta, is looking at a future population of 150,000. For wastewater management, that means new forcemains and gravity sewers, new pumping stations, new storage facilities, and more.
Four new pumping stations handle wastewater from their municipality and the upstream facilities. The Olds station pumps to Bowden, Bowden then pumps to Innisfail and Penhold. Each station becomes progressively larger to accommodate the accumulated flow.
Equipped with both vapor phase and liquid phase odor control systems, each station helps mitigate nuisance emissions from the raw sewage—which controls downstream odor generation at receiving facilities. HVAC and gas detection systems were installed, and standby generators were included in case of utility failure.
To permit remote operation, our team completed the stations with a comprehensive supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.
Now, Central Alberta is one step closer to delivering all the comforts of home to new residents.
