Municipality of Rockwood and Stony Mountain Institute – Wastewater Treatment Lagoon Upgrade

The RM of Rockwood and Stony Mountain Institute (SMI) had been operating facultative lagoons adjacent to each other, both of which were hydraulically overloaded and leaking.

JRCC designed an aerated lagoon treatment system that services both the RM of Rockwood and the federal penitentiary. This regional facility operates as a hybrid system, utilizing continuous discharge in summer and storage in winter, while providing enhanced nutrient reduction and disinfection. Challenges overcome during design and construction included poor soil conditions and federal security requirements.

The RM and SMI now have a safe, cost-effective and reliable long-term solution to their wastewater treatment.
