Rudy Swanson Park North Reservoir Roof Replacement

Project Update - July 5, 2024

• The contractor, Vector, has completed removal of the old structure from the reservoir roof, and has installed the new waterproofing membrane. Installation of new sloped insulation is ongoing. Once that is complete, they will finish the installation of the new roof structure prior to restoring the landscaping.
• The City recently approved a plan to re-landscape the area around the reservoir with low-maintenance plantings.
• The inside of the reservoir has been cleaned and disinfected by Vector, and then handed back to the City. The City has refilled the reservoir with potable water, and will be bringing this back online for City use. This will ensure that the City has enough water on hand to meet the daily water and emergency firefighting needs of the City.

Project Details
The City of Camrose is replacing the structure on top of an existing drinking water reservoir, located within Rudy Swanson Park. The existing reservoir was constructed in 1983. The roof structure (including waterproofing membrane) is original to the facility, and is approaching the end of its useful life. This project will include the removal of the existing roof structure and membrane, and the installation of a new membrane, insulation and roof structure. The project will help protect the City’s treated drinking water supply from potential contamination.

Area Impacted
Construction will take place on the north treated water reservoir, located within the Rudy Swanson Recreational Park, south of 44 Avenue and west of 55 Street.

Tentative Schedule

  • April 8, 2024 – April 20, 2024 – Tree pruning and limited tree removal; install protection measures around remaining trees.
  • April 20, 2024 – Mid-May 2024 – Removal of existing roof structure, including basketball hoops, fencing, lighting, etc.
  • Mid-May 2024 – Mid-July 2024 – Installation of new waterproofing, insulation and roof structure.
  • Mid-July 2024 – Early August 2024 – New chain link fence installation; remove tree protection; reinstate landscaping including sod placement.
