Meet the Man
with the Water Plan
Most major cities sell water in bulk. Getting water in the city of Red Deer, however, used to be quite the undertaking. With the refill station housed at the Water Treatment Plant, right off of Red Deer's downtown, Art, a water truck driver turned Power Engineer, would sometimes wait hours to fill up his truck's tank with water for transport. With heavy traffic in and out of the core, the increasing backlog was frustrating and becoming difficult to handle
An entrepreneur and problem solver, Art worked with the City to create a positive solution that would not only relieve the long wait times, but also provide a great experience for anyone needing to purchase bulk water. That solution was to build a state of the art water plant in Red Deer's northern industrial area where it’s accessible right off the highway and capable of filling bulk water at a rate of 3m3/minute - a win-win for everyone. Now, over 13 years after opening the facility, Art continually looks for ways to evolve and improve Water Worx for his clients, including upgrading the bulk hot water heating system to Miura high efficiency boilers, adding pin-code access for 24/7 operation and heated lanes to keep drivers safe from snow and ice.
