Wastewater Services

Update: April 6, 2021

Due to rising numbers of COVID-19 infections in the community, the City of St. Albert’s household wastewater sewer inspections, sewer maintenance and in-home wastewater back-up responses have been suspended effective immediately.

Until the City resumes in-person wastewater service line maintenance services, all related existing and future reimbursement requests will undergo additional review by the Utilities Branch to determine the location of the deficiencies before validated requests are reimbursed according to the following guidelines:

  • 100 per cent of expenses incurred with proof of paid plumbing contractor invoice if deficiencies are contained solely on City property as verified by the City.
  • 50 per cent of expenses incurred with proof of paid plumbing contractor invoice if deficiencies are contained on both the City and private property as verified by the City.
  • 0 per cent reimbursement if deficiencies are contained solely on private property as verified by the City.

Invoices, proof of payment and other applicable information submitted by residents will be validated by City Administration using the above stated guidelines with applicable reimbursement applied via a credit to the resident's Utility account to a maximum amount of $500.00 per occurrence.
