Upgrades to Bonnybrook WWTP with Precast Concrete Box Culverts
Inland Pipe is supplying precast concrete box culverts and other drainage structures to the City of Calgary’s Bonnybrook Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) expansion project. The expansion will involve multiple construction phases over 10 years and cost taxpayers $CAD800 million. The Bonnybrook WWTP services the entire Northern half of Calgary and has the capacity to treat wastewater for a population of 946,000. When the expansion is completed, its capacity will increase to a population of 1,370,000, which is estimated to support the city’s rapidly growing population until the mid-2030s. In addition, the City is improving the energy efficiency of the facility by capturing biogas from the treated wastewater to generate electricity. During certain times of the year, the plant can operate entirely from its own biogas, thereby significantly decreasing operating costs.
