North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System receives 2019 APEGA Summit Award

Award recognizes engineering project that is a substantial contribution to the betterment of society

The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission (NRDRWWSC) is pleased to announce that the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System received the Project Achievement Award at the 2019 Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) Summit Awards, held in Calgary on April 25, 2019.

“The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission is very excited to receive the Project Achievement Award from APEGA,” Ken Wigmore, NRDRWWSC chair, said. ” This is truly an honour, to first be nominated and secondly to receive such a prestigious award. Using Stantec’s expertise and engineering services, this project is a partnership between the three municipalities, bringing much-needed services to the growing communities in central Alberta.”

The Project Achievement Award recognizes an outstanding engineering or geoscience project that represents a substantial contribution to technological progress and the betterment of society. This award was last presented in 2016.

“The City of Lacombe, along with our partner municipalities, are thrilled to be recognized again for this forward-thinking infrastructure project,” Grant Creasey, City of Lacombe mayor and NRDRWWSC vice chair, said. “The transmission system not only provides for much-needed long-term sustainability in addressing the critical wastewater needs in our region, but also supports continued growth for Lacombe, Blackfalds, and Lacombe County.”

Designed by Stantec, the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System promises a cleaner future for communities in central Alberta.

“Blackfalds Town Council is honored to be part of the Commission that has earned this prestigious award,” Mayor Richard Poole, Town of Blackfalds mayor and NRDRWWSC director, said. “This is another example of how the communities of Blackfalds, Lacombe and Lacombe County are working together to create opportunities that economically and environmentally benefit us all.”

Completed on time and under budget, the system incorporates innovative approaches and leading-edge technologies to provide a modern wastewater solution while protecting a sensitive watershed.

“Lacombe County is pleased to be recognized alongside our partners with a 2019 APEGA Project Achievement Award for our work on the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System,” Lacombe County Reeve Paula Law said. “Lacombe County Projects like this strengthen municipal relationships, while also ensuring that we are protecting the environment, our water sources, and unique eco-systems in our region.”

Matthew Goudy, CAO of the NRDRWWSC said the award is an honour.

“This recognition shows that central Alberta continues to be a hub of technological innovation and leadership in stewardship of public infrastructure funds,” he said.
