Red Deer is now accepting and treating wastewater from Lacombe and Blackfalds.

The North Red Deer Regional Wastewater System connecting the three communities went into service on Thursday, April 12.

Matthew Goudy, CAO for the City of Lacombe, which manages and oversees the line, says all has gone well since the system was turned on.

The 29-kilometre wastewater line carries 5,000 to 6,000 cubic metres of wastewater each day from Lacombe and Blackfalds to the City of Red Deer Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Goudy says the $71 million project was completed on time and under budget.

Grand opening celebrations are scheduled for May 4.
