In 2014, the Nanton waste water treatment plant experienced significant operational challenges, forcing the Town to explore the best possible solution; a new waste water treatment plant. Under the direction of Council, the Administrative team and Public Services Committee worked hard to secure funding and support from other levels of government to ensure that this would be a possibility. Through hard work and collaboration, funding from both the Province of Alberta and the Government of Canada were approved.
WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT FUNDING SOURCES

The project went to Tender and Chandos Construction was awarded the contract. The Town of Nanton and contracted engineer firm, ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd., worked with Chandos to bring the total cost of construction with the specialized technology from GE Water and Processing Technologies to $11,866,363.
Construction has officially started. There was a ground-breaking ceremony held on April 18th to kick off this exciting new project.
