Arthur A Youngman Water Treatment Plant


The Arthur A Youngman (West Siksika) regional water treatment plant is designed to supply potable water to the Siksika, North Camp, Stobart Lake and West End townsites.

The West Siksika water plant diverts water from the Bow River. Water is treated using a conventional treatment system which consists of chemical injection, flash mixing, flocculation, settling and filtration. The treated water is then chlorinated and falls into a baffled clear well system. The combination of chlorine residual and baffling provides the chlorine contact time to inactivate giardia, cryptosporidium and viruses.

Treated water is stored in the reservoir and is pumped to potable water reservoirs and in each of the serviced townsites.

The water treatment system is monitored with a supervisory control and data acquisition system. This system also monitors the water reservoir levels, supply and distribution systems flow rates, pressures and pump status of each of the regional water pump stations.

Sim-Flo's Role

Sim-Flo was retained to provide project management and design of the treatment, mechanical systems, electrical, controls and SCADA system. The SCADA system monitors the water treatment plant as well as the West End, Stobart Lake and Siksika pump stations.

Sim-Flo Systems works closely with the water system operators to design a user friendly system.
