In the summer of 2021, Lacombe County Utility Services will begin testing for Alberta Environment & Parks (AEP) regulated water systems. These tests will be conducted in Mirror, Lakeview Estates and Aspelund Industrial Business Parks.
Lacombe County Utilities staff will be conducting lead testing from May to September of 2021. To accomplish this, they will be selecting a percentage of houses and businesses that have a higher chance of lead service lines based on construction date.
At this time, ONLY homes/businesses within municipal water systems under the jurisdiction of Alberta Environment will be tested. Farm water wells and small systems under the jurisdiction of Alberta Health Services (AHS) will not be sampled by Lacombe County. Farms or small system owners that wish to test lead content would be responsible for their own testing.
That said, Lacombe County can assist ratepayers who are concerned about their water quality or who require information about testing their water lines for lead. Please contact Lacombe County’s Community Services Department at 403-782-8959.
