A Wastewater Discharge Application must be submitted to the ACRWC if an organization proposes to discharge industrial wastewater into the ACRWC's system. If the application is approved, a Wastewater Discharge Permit will be issued to the applicant by the ACRWC. If the application is denied or requires revision, the applicant will be contacted.
If the wastewater in question is to be discharged into one of the Alberta Capital Region's Transfer Stations (truck dump facilities), the appropriate municipality must also be contacted to gain access to the Transfer Station and to understand any other requirements the municipality may have. A listing of the Alberta Capital Region's Transfer Stations and approximate locations appears on the final page of the Wastewater Discharge Application.
The ACRWC will not consider wastewater originating outside of its service area.
Prior to completing a Wastewater Discharge Application, the ACRWC Bylaw No. 8 - Quality of Wastewater should be referenced to compare the characteristics of the proposed wastewater discharge with the acceptable characteristics and limits within the Bylaw. If the characteristics of the wastewater to be discharged meet the requirements and the parameters are less than the bylaw limits, please complete and submit the Discharge Application. If the characteristics do not meet the requirements and the parameters are greater than the bylaw limits, an alternative disposal method may be required; however, the ACRWC may still consider the Wastewater Discharge Application or request a revision.
