The South Red Deer Regional Wastewater Commission will be increasing its wastewater rates again next year, according to Olds councillor Harvey Walsh. He says those rates are also expected to go up in 2017 and 2018 as well.
Walsh represents the town on the Commission. He reported the news about the wastewater rate hike to council, during Monday night's meeting.
He says last year the commission implemented a 5 cent per cubic meter wastewater rate increase and further hikes are expected in 2017 and 2018 as well.
Olds, Bowden, Mountain View County, Penhold, Innisfail, and Red Deer County are all serviced by the system which transports effluent from Central Alberta to Red Deer for treatment.
