Town Asks Residents to Please Reduce Grey Water Discharge

June 23, 2022

The Town of Olds wastewater system is currently maintaining its capacity. All lift stations are in working order and the Town is holding water infiltration at bay.
Our main priority is to maintain conservation of grey water and residents are asked to ensure their sump pumps are not diverted into the Town’s sewer system. Please check to ensure all water from sump pumps is flowing outside of your home and away from the Town’s sewer infrastructure.
We are asking residents to reduce their grey water discharge, as much as possible until further notice. (The term ‘grey water’ applies to water from showers, tubs, washing machines, dishwashers and sinks).
The Town of Olds Operations Department is continually monitoring lift stations and areas of concern. There is some trivial area storm water flooding, however there are no sewer issues.
Thank you for your diligence and cooperation.
