Upgrades Are Underway at the Frank Wastewater Treatment Plant


Graham is pleased to have been awarded the CDN$20 million Frank Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade project. 

Located in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, the existing wastewater treatment plant has been operating since the late 1980’s. Upgrades to the Plant have been in design for several years and are now being realized.  These upgrades will increase treatment capacity and ensure the wastewater effluent quality remains compliant with current regulations and standards.

The project consists of the construction of a second process stream for incoming wastewater, a major headworks building addition and a new secondary clarifier with a swing zone, two bioreactor sections and a digester. The project also involves upgrades to the existing plant with two new centrifuges, a new sludge storage aeration system, new sludge transfer pumps and polymer delivery pumps, along with an upgraded lab and improvements to the Operator’s spaces within the facility.

Leveraging local talent from the Crowsnest Pass, Graham’s project team is self-performing both the concrete and process mechanical scopes of work on this project, supplemented by a great team of subcontractors for the remaining scopes.
