Water & Wastewater Systems

Water Treatment System

The Town owns and operates a Regional Water Treatment Plant that provides potable water to Three Hills, Trochu and portions of Kneehill County. Water that enters the plant is drawn from the Red Deer River, treated and distributed through a 22km pipeline to Town. 

Once the treated water gets to Town, a distribution system of a treated water reservoir, distribution pumphouse and over 64km of pipe delivers water throughout Town.

Wastewater Collection System

The Town operates a sewer collection system with over 26km of collection pipes and a sewage lagoon treatment facility located south of Town. Once treated, the treated effluent is recycled and used to water the Three Hills Golf Course.

Accidental High Water Usage

Three Hills provides financial assistance to single-family residential customers who receive a high water/wastewater utility bill as a result of a water leak or plumbing failure within the property.

 An extension for paying water and wastewater bills will not be provided because of a pending adjustment request. Residents are advised to pay the full amount of the accidental high-water bill within the normal payment period while your adjustment request is being investigated for the accidental high-water bill amount to remain in good standing on all current billings.
