OUR DRINKING WATER

OUR WASTEWATER SYSTEM

Resident wastewater is conveyed via multiple lift stations within the City to a system of lagoon cells,  Wastewater moves through the cells and is treated through microbes, natural chemical processes and enzymes enhanced with an aeration system.   Once treated, the water is ready to be discharged from the lagoon via miles of underground piping to the South Saskatchewan River.   

The treated water, or 'effluent' is typically discharged between May until October but is held in the lagoon cells through the months where we experience below freezing temperatures. 

Due to ongoing growth, the City’s current lagoon system and water and wastewater infrastructure is not sufficient for growing demands and upgrades to the infrastructure are underway.

Upgrading Our Infrastructure

In 2014 the City of Martensville signed an MOU with the City of Saskatoon that would see Saskatoon provide water and wastewater services to Martensville so that demand for service could be met while the upgrades are being made.

These upgrades include:

  • Upgrades to existing lagoons
  • New gravity conveyance system to connect to the City of Saskatoon’s sanitary sewer system
  • Upgrades to existing sewage lift station
  • Upgrades to the water supply reservoir and pumping stations
  • New water main that will connect to Saskatoon’s drinking water supply system

Once the upgrades are made, the City will purchase its drinking water directly from the City of Saskatoon.

Funding to substantially complete these upgrades was obtained through a New Build Canada Fund grant ($20.16 million) the City received in early 2019. The upgrades should be complete by 2022.

What’s Safe to Flush and Pour Down the Drain

Flush only toilet paper with waste down the toilet.  

Items such as paper towel and disposable wipes cannot be flushed down the toilet, even if the package says it is flushable.  

Food products containing grease, fats and oils, coffee grounds, and materials like flushable wipes, paper towel, personal hygiene items, birth control methods, pharmaceuticals and hair can cause build-ups that clog pipes and create sewer back-ups. This can result in costly damage to both your home’s sewer system and the City’s sanitary sewer system.

Items that should never be flushed down sinks, drains and toilets are:

  • Fats, oils and grease
  • Diapers, wet wipes, rags, bandages
  • Dental floss, cotton swabs, condoms, cosmetics
  • Personal hygiene products (tampons, applicators, sanitary napkins)
  • Pills and medicine
  • Cigarette butts
  • Paper towels
  • Children toys
  • Bleach and ammonia
  • Clean solvents and spot removers
  • Disinfectants
  • Hot tub and swimming pool chemicals
  • Oven cleaners
  • Septic tank cleaners
  • Alkyd, latex and oil-based paints
  • Lacquers, stains and varnishes
  • Paint thinners, strippers and solvents
  • Petroleum-based products such as motor oil and gasoline

Instead:

  • Wipe plates and dishes clean of fats, sauces, and dressings before washing.
  • Compost organic waste (food scraps, coffee grounds and paper towel) in your organics bin.
  • Return unused pills and other pharmaceuticals to the pharmacy.
  • Dispose of wipes, diapers, personal hygiene products, and birth control methods in the garbage.
  • Unload hazardous products at the household hazardous waste drop-off site.

STORMWATER

The City of Martensville uses a combination of surface drainage and storm sewer to drain water. Water is directed into storm water retention ponds prior to exiting the City via the Opimihaw Creek.
