In 1981, the present and future need for a Water Treatment Plant was identified for the Springbank Area. As such, Calalta Waterworks Ltd. was established to compliment the operations of Calaway Park and construction began on a 10” waterline from the Elbow River to Calaway Park along Range Road 33.
Calalta Waterworks’ initial water treatment plant was designed for the operation of Calaway Park and to provide safe drinking water to the local schools, community center, and area community. In 2007, Alberta Environment requested all rural utilities be upgraded to a new standard, and Calalta Waterworks surpassed the challenge. In addition, a half a million gallon treated water reservoir was built in 2010.
Springbank Park for All Seasons, the Edge School, businesses in Commercial Court, the Springbank Elementary, Middle and High Schools, are among the continued customers to the water treatment plant.
In 2015, Calalta Waterworks commissioned a state-of-the-art ultra membrane filtration plant with UV treatment and in 2020 negotiated a Franchise Agreement with Rocky View County. The plant continues to exceed the drinking water quality guidelines set forth by Alberta Environment. The plant is recognized by government agencies, Rocky View County and experts in the field to be one of the top water treatment facilities in Alberta.
Calalta Waterworks’ Franchise Agreement is for exclusive distribution and water utility rights within the area. Calalta is able to provide drinking water services to communities and users outside of its franchise area with the agreement of governing authorities.
