Water and Sewer

The Town of Turner Valley is committed to providing potable water to residents in both Turner Valley and Black Diamond. The Town works diligently with regional partners and the Province of Alberta to facilitate distribution and ensure quality.

See our Utilities Billing and Payments page for residential and industrial water costs and visit our Water Conservation, Water Treatment and Quad Regional Water Partnership pages for more information water management in Turner Valley.

Sewer

The Town of Turner Valley is responsible for municipal sewer maintenance and has implemented a leak detection program. This program works by pressure testing the water lines and then listening for leaks within the system at hydrants, curb-stops and main valves.

If your sump pump runs frequently through dry weather conditions or during the winter, or you notice running water or a persistent puddle, please contact the municipal office as there may be a leak within the system.

Sanitary Wipes – Keep the Wipes out of Pipes 

Please refrain from flushing sanitary wipes down the toilet as they have created significant blockages in the Town’s sewage pumps in the past. While these wipes may be marketed as ‘flushable,’ they do not dissolve like toilet paper and will get stuck in sewer pipes and equipment which will result in shutdowns and significant maintenance and repair costs.

Keep the wipes out of pipes and avoid the cost of cleaning up potential sewer backup in your home.

Westend Regional Sewage Services Commission

The Westend Regional Sewage Services Commission was established in 1994 by the Government of Alberta. The Commission is served by members of Council from Turner Valley and Black Diamond and its mandate is to regulate sewage management in the two towns.
