The Sewer Utility, another integral part of Environmental Utilities, collects and treats wastewater (also known as sanitary sewer) from City of Medicine Hat customers.
The Utility ensures all treated wastewater meets the rigid safety, environmental, monitoring, recording and reporting parameters of Federal, Provincial, wastewater industry and local standards. The Sewer Utility also plans and implements infrastructure expansions and upgrades to meet planning needs, as well as supports approved local development objectives.
Mandated by the Sewer Bylaw #1541, both the Environmental Utilities Department and the City of Medicine Hat sewer customers are expected to adhere to the regulations set forth in the bylaw. The Sewer Utility is also regulated by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP).
