The old cardlock closed on June 6 and is back in service starting Aug. 31. Drumheller Co-op General Manager Brent Walker talked about what it took to construct the new facility. He explained that the old cardlock bulk tanks were at the end of their lifespan and needed to be de-commissioned.

"We needed to dig the site up anyway, so we took a look at what was best suited for Drumheller and this is the new recommended package for the volumes that we're doing and looking into the future, how much volumes we can be doing later on," said Walker.

Looking forward, Walker is optimistic about the cardlock's lifespan.

"Underground tanks are good for 30 years. We foresee that we probably have to do some upgrades to pumps and stuff ongoing and dispensers probably in 10 years."

The new cardlock is meant to serve the area around Drumheller. There is a second cardlock in Linden, also owned by Drumheller Co-op.

"We do have ability now with the extra tanks for people not to have to wait in line. There's lots of pumps to be filling up at, and we expect it to be going good into the future," said Walker.

Walker praised the Co-op Board of Directors, management and the Drumheller Co-op team members for their assistance with the cardlock project.
