The Public Works Department

The Public Works Department is comprised of the Public Works Manager, Public Works Supervisor and five full-time staff. The department is responsible for the maintenance of a potable water distribution system, wastewater collection system, road maintenance and repairs, snow removal and solid waste collection.  The department also maintains Town-owned facilities, various specialized equipment, and motorized vehicles.

Public Works also develops and maintains an effective relationship with the Provincial government, other municipal governments, municipal associations, engineering associations and consultants. Public Works assists Council to develop a strategic plan that will provide timely service to our customers and responsible operational budgets for maintaining the Town's infrastructure.

Drinking Water 

Public Works utility operators monitor the Town's potable water to ensure their treatment and distribution processes are continuing to provide safe drinking water for the Town's residents.  

Alberta Environment and Public Works monitor the Town's drinking water quality against approved water quality guidelines to ensure compliance while delivering safe drinking water and optimization of facility performances.
