Rocky Water Treatment Plant Grand Opening Success

Brazeau County Council celebrates the grand opening of the Rocky Rapids Water Treatment Plant (RRWTP) a ribbon cutting ceremony.  The event is attended by several dignitaries including Drayton Valley- Devon MLA Mark Smith and several elected officials from surrounding municipalities.

The new RRWTP was built to replace the other, aging 20 year old facility. The original design was produced in 2010 and ground broke on the project March 1, 2013. The total cost of the project is $7,144,947.71 with a significant portion of the monies coming from the Alberta Municipal Water/Wastewater Partnership Grant in the amount of $3,282,866.00.

“Providing water treatment services is a key infrastructure system for ensuring the continued growth and longevity of our County; this plant stands as a symbol of the value we place on the quality of life and prosperity for residents of Brazeau County,” says Reeve Bart Guyon. “Building a water treatment plant is a large undertaking and I am proud, as the Reeve of this County, to have this opportunity to congratulate the County on its efforts and continued commitment to providing safe and reliable water treatment services in Brazeau.”

The Rocky Rapids Water Treatment plant serves mainly the residents and surrounding area of Rocky Rapids.
