Waste Water Treatment Plant Fee

On September 20th, 2016, Council gave all three readings to Bylaw 2187, approving the borrowing of $10,324,990 over 20 years from Alberta Capital Finance Authority for the purpose of constructing a Waste Water Treatment Plant.

The Waste Water Treatment Plant is required following some changes to requirements and regulations for Waste Water by the Province of Alberta under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act. These requirement changes made it mandatory to proceed with this project at this time.

The total cost of the project is estimated at over $17.5 million, with over $6 million being covered by a Provincial grant.

As a result, at $14.25 charge will be added to all utility bills connected to the Town's sewer system. This fee is necessary to help cover the costs associated with the construction of the plant and will be in effect for the length of the debenture.
