utilities and water
Most areas within Camrose County have access to telephone, television and internet services. Although there may be some areas that face more challenges in accessing some of these services, the ever changing digital technology is closing that gap for many of Camrose County residents.
As a landowner, you are responsible for looking after the water wells on your property. All water wells must be registered with Alberta Environment and Resource Development.
As a best practice landowners should test your water for coliform bacteria twice a year (or more often if your well is less than 50 feet deep).
Contact the Groundwater Information centre to learn more.
Solid water disposal must adhere to Alberta Statutes. As a landowner, you are responsible for disposing of trash in a licensed dump site, securing waste disposal services and implementing a recycling plan.
Camrose County provides garbage pickup service in Pelican Point and New Norway only.

Private Sewage Systems
As a rural landowner, you are responsible for properly using and maintaining your private sewage system. Improper use and lack of regular maintenance may contaminate your water well and local groundwater supply, putting the health of your family and neighbours at risk.
Private Sewage systems are regulated by the Private Sewage Disposal Systems Regulation, through the Building Codes department at the City of Camrose.
