Requiring an increase in potable water due to a surge in year-round tourism, the new Evan-Thomas Water and Wastewater Treatment Facility in Kananaskis County, Alberta replaced the decades-old infrastructure that could no longer meet demand. The new treatment facility significantly improves upon its predecessor by using state-of-the-art technology such as ultraviolet disinfection to enhance water safety. The aquatic life in both the Kananaskis and Bow Rivers has been greatly improved by the various treatment solutions implemented to reduce the amount of harmful nutrients entering the environment. In addition to the facility, Aecon laid 12 kilometres of distribution piping through one of Canada’s most beautiful and lush landscapes, carefully managing numerous water crossings, public roads and natural habitat.
