Leduc County's Public Works and Engineering department is responsible for water distribution systems, wastewater collection and treatment systems. It operates two bulk water outlets, one each in the Nisku Business Park (1402 7 St.) and hamlet of New Sarepta (4991 Centre Avenue), and one portable water outlet, currently located on the east side of Nisku Spine Road at 37 Avenue in Nisku.
Leduc County purchases water from the Capital Region Southwest Water Services Commission and discharges its wastewater into the Alberta Capital Region Wastewater Commission system.
Note: The Northeast Pigeon Lake Regional Sewer Services Commission (NEPL) is operated by the County of Wetaskiwin. Leduc County residents who have wastewater hauled to the Mulhurst Bay Lagoon will no longer be invoiced by Leduc County; haulers will be billed directly by the County of Wetaskiwin for each load of wastewater.
Public notice: temporary fluoride interruption to water services
The CRSWSC receives its water from EPCOR’s E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant in Edmonton. EPCOR is upgrading the water treatment plant to improve capacity. To accommodate construction at the plant, EPCOR will temporarily stop adding fluoride to water from the plant. This means that water provided to the CRSWSC utility customers won’t contain fluoride during EPCOR’s construction. The interruption will last for approximately seven months, beginning September 3, 2019.
What should I do?
Alberta Health Services (AHS) has recommended using a fluoridated toothpaste and scheduling a regular dental checkup during the temporary interruption. AHS always recommends eating healthy foods that are low in sugar to help fight against cavities and other dental health issues.
Is water without fluoride safe to drink?
During this temporary interruption the water is perfectly safe to drink. There will be no change in taste or colour, the only difference will be the absence of fluoride providing additional dental health benefits.
I’d like more information on fluoride
If you have questions or want more information on the health benefits of fluoride, please contact Alberta Health Services' Health Link 24/7 by dialing 811 or visit MyHealth.Alberta.ca.
