Lacombe County approves sewer line to Sylvan Lake

Red Deer Advocate - Sept 25 

Lacombe County has agreed to allow a Sylvan Lake sewage line to be built in road right-of-ways despite the potential for future construction headaches. The Sylvan Lake Waste Water Commission has been working on building a regional sewer line for years and the latest plan is to construct a sewage receiving station in the county about six km north of Sylvan Lake. The much-anticipated project will allow summer villages and acreage developments in Lacombe and Red Deer counties to truck, and eventually pipe, their waste to Sylvan Lake for treatment. To get the waste there, a 13-km line is proposed and the commission wants it to run through the road allowances next to county roads.  Click here to read more.
