Wet Weather Flows

Wet Weather Flows

Excess wet weather flow affects communities throughout the Alberta Capital Region, causing their sanitary systems to become overloaded, leading to significant environmental, public health and financial impacts.

In 2014, the Alberta Capital Region Wastewater Commission adopted a Wet Weather Strategy for the region. The Wet Weather Strategy is the result of a two-year collaborative effort by the ACRWC and its 13 member municipalities. The adoption of the Wet Weather Strategy is a significant step towards addressing issues related to excess wet weather flow in the region.
