Wastewater Lift Station Rehabilitation Program
Currently, this project is in the final stages of the Riel Lift Station Reconstruction. The new station will provide added storage and pumping capacity as well as stand by power and emergency overflow precision in case of a power outage. This project also encompassed upgrades to the Riel sanitary dump station frequented by thousands of users annually.
Wastewater Household Service Replacement Program
This program allows for the replacement of wastewater services to individual properties within the city. Causes for replacement vary from structural deficiencies (eg. broken lines, fractures, sags, etc...) to root intrusion. Through this program, the City is able to offer substantial cost saving to homeowners interested in replacing their portion of the service in conjunction with the City's work.
