Utility Services

 The Utility Services department provides reliable, quality water and waste-water systems while ensuring that all utilities infrastructure meets current standards and practices.


Members of Sturgeon Countys' 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.


Private well water testing

Sturgeon County residents wanting to ensure quality of their well water are able to take advantage of a free well-water testing service.

Testing kits are available free of charge at the Gibbons Health Unit, located at 4720-50 Avenue, Gibbons, Alberta.

Once collected, samples need to be dropped off the same day they are collected, prior to 10 a.m. From there, the samples will be delivered to the provincial testing facility in Edmonton. To ensure accuracy of test results, samples cannot be older than 24 hours.

For more information you can contact Alberta Health Services at 780-342-1380.
