Histoire administrative

The Water Treatment Plant functionality began in 1904 with the installation of the first water works system in the Town of Red Deer. Management of the intake pumps was shared between the Public Works department and Western General Electric Company until 1926.

The City made many improvements to the systems. In 1933, they installed a chlorinator and heating system for the winter. In 1939, the City constructed a water filtration plant. A new water treatment plant was build in 1955 to supplement the capacity. Water Treatment Plan No. 2 opened in 1983 and the Bellvue Reservoir was constructed south of Water Treatment Plant No. 1 in 1995. In 2003, a new upgrade and expansion began, finishing in 2008, to serve the regional potable water needs of the Red Deer River Water Services Commission.

The Water Treatment Plant was managed by Public Works, who in turn reported to the City Engineer and other areas until 2006. The funding for the system moved from Public Works to Utilities in 1963. In 1995, Engineering Services was renamed Development Services. In 2006, the Water Treatment Plant moved to report under the Environmental Services department instead of Public Works.
