Wastewater Treatment Plant Update

As I am sure everyone is aware, we have been working a long time in getting the new Wastewater Treatment Plant built.

I am pleased to report we are reaching the end.

The plant’s construction is completed, and all of the equipment is currently being commissioned by GE. Our staff are being trained, and we’re getting ready to turn the new plant on officially very soon.

The final step is the tie-in of the new plant to our existing sewer lines. This work is currently TENTATIVELY scheduled for June 5, 2017. The work will be performed overnight so that we have the least disruption to the overall sewer system.

To help out with this final tie-in, the Town of Nanton will be REQUESTING residents "refrain from the drain" for the one night where this tie-in is performed, between 12 midnight and 6 am. To be clear, this doesn’t mean that residents should not use water at all, or not use the bathroom…if you have a need for water and sewer use, please do so.  However, the less wastewater we have flowing in during this operation, the easier it is to complete.

We will keep you informed as we get closer and finalize the date.

If you require further information, please contact Kevin Miller, CAO at (403) 646-2029 or cao@nanton.ca.
