Lagoons

Wastewater Collection & Treatment

The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 has four wastewater collection systems and five wastewater lagoons which treat the wastewater influent to ensure we meet Alberta Environment Guidelines.  The effluent from the Little Smoky, Sturgeon Heights, Ridgevalley and DeBolt lagoons is discharged on an annual basis.  Samples are taken at that time for analysis by a private laboratory.  M.D. staff carry out ongoing maintenance to the collection systems wastewater lift stations and the lagoons. The Grovedale lagoon is an evaporative lagoon that does not require an annual discharge.To gain access to one of the Municipal Lagoons, you must fill out an application and return to our office, then a key will be issued.
