Graham Group Ltd. Awarded Wandering River Water Pipeline Project

Graham Group Ltd. was recently awarded the CDN$30 million Wandering River Water Pipeline project – the first-ever public design-build pipeline in Alberta.

Selected because of our innovative construction approach and ability to meet the County of Athabasca's aggressive schedule, Graham will serve as design-builder in constructing an 88 km (55 mi.) water pipeline that will run through the communities of Boyle to Grassland and ultimately to Wandering River, all located in northern Alberta. The scope also includes modification of the existing Grassland water treatment plant to a truck fill station, and the design and construction of a new reservoir in Wandering River.

The new pipeline will ensure a safe and reliable water supply to Athabasca County and will replace the current water infrastructure. The welcomed pipeline is anticipated to attract light industry and new business to the region. Construction will begin September 2011 and is scheduled to wrap up in October 2012.
