Sanitary Sewage System

The sanitary sewage system is operated as a self-sufficient rate based utility system. It consists of 123 kms of sewer mains, 1,450 man holes, 9,300 service lines, and a state-of-the-art Wastewater Treatment Plant.

In March 2005, Okotoks' growing population posed a concern as the Town's existing wastewater plant was fully loaded and had discharge limits nearing regulatory upper limits. To address the situation, the Town invested in a new 10 million litre per day tertiary wastewater treatment plant that utilizes innovative technologies including; a new bio-reactor that doubles flow capacity, an ultraviolet light disinfection system, a biological nutrient removal process and a method to compost of the systems bio-solids sludge.
