Wastewater

Wastewater
Strathcona County Utilities operates and maintains all underground sewer systems for:

  • Sherwood Park
  • Ardrossan
  • Josephburg
  • Collingwood Cove
  • Half Moon Lake
  • Antler Lake
  • South Cooking Lake

This includes the infrastructure serviced by low-pressure sewer systems from the property up to and including the lift station and lagoons.

As a homeowner, you are responsible for repairs to water or wastewater (sewer) pipes on your property. Water or wastewater lines on public property are the responsibility of the County. 

To learn more about wastewater and preventing your home from flooding, check out these informative videos made by the City of Edmonton.

Protect the environment with these tips:

  • Don't pour fats, oils and grease down the drain. Instead, cool and place them into your green organics cart. These substances clog pipes, leading to costly repairs.
  • Take unused medications to the pharmacy for disposal rather than flushing them down the toilet. Pharmaceuticals are not treated and end up in our water and environment.
  • Use phosphate-free cleaning products to reduce phosphorus levels in the river. Phosphorous is a nutrient that promotes algae growth, which negatively affects our aquatic environments.
  • Take household hazardous waste, such as motor oil, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, paints and chemicals to the Broadview Enviroservice Station.
  • Use your organics cart for vegetable peelings and food instead of a garborator. Ground organic materials cost more to treat and must be disposed of at the wastewater treatment plant.
