Maple Reinders was awarded the contract to Design/Build/Operate the new Jasper Wastewater Treatment Plant, located in Jasper National Park. This construction project was the Municipality’s largest and brings significant environmental benefits to Jasper National Park. The new treatment plant is one of the most advanced in the world and meets one of the most stringent effluent requirements in Western Canada. The scope of work included a new primary clarifier, combined treatment units, sludge composting facility, UV disinfection system and septage receiving station. Maple Reinders was able to provide BNR (biological nutrient removal) technology for the cost of an SBR (sequential batch reactor) plant by designing and constructing two combined treatment units. The bioreactor and secondary clarifiers are housed in the same structure to provide cost-efficient construction. The new treatment plant is capable of treating 7,500 m3/day of influent, treating septage and producing an effluent quality of <0.5mg/L of total phosphorus. All building structures on the site were consciously designed with a “mountain” architectural motif that conforms to the guidelines set out by the Town of Jasper. River stone, wood and natural colours were used to create an appealing mountain aesthetic.
