The Utility and Waste Management Services department provides reliable, quality water and waste-water systems while ensuring that all utilities infrastructure meets current standards.
Members of Sturgeon County's Utility Department often need to gain access to homes in the region to test water supply. Check out this #YouTube video that explains the value in having our Utility Officers test your water.
