Wastewater is collected from throughout the community and is fed to two treatment facilities through a gravity fed collection system. There is an Extended Aeration Treatment Plant located in the Frank Industrial Park. This plant is a mechanical plant that will treat wastewater from Coleman, Blairmore and Frank. Wastewater from Bellevue and Hillcrest is fed into a series of Extended Aeration Lagoons that are located between these communities.
All systems are monitored 24/7 by a supervisory control and date acquisition system (SCADA). Qualified Municipal employees, who visit each site daily, take samples for testing to ensure we are providing safe, quality service. Samples are also tested by an independent laboratory on a regular basis. The results of all testing is reported to Alberta Environment daily.
