Rural community uses fiberglass tanks for wastewater holding

Lac Santé, AB
Onsite Wastewater Tanks

In the Lac Santé area, a rural community in eastern Alberta, Canada, residents with sewage holding tanks must have their sewage transported to the municipal lagoon.

Historically, private haulers have taken sewage from the residences to the distant treatment facilities in small loads.

The Counties of St. Paul and Two Hills constructed the Lafond Wastewater Transfer Station to act as a centralized facility to increase efficiencies in transporting sewage to the treatment facility. Private haulers will be able to transport wastewater from residences to the transfer station, which includes four ZCL | Xerxes holding tanks.

Later, when the storage tanks are full, the County will transport the wastewater to the lagoon in larger trucks with greater capacity than the private haulers’ trucks.
