The Mill Creek combined trunks carry wastewater from a large part of south Edmonton towards the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant, and also convey stormwater and snowmelt from some of Edmonton’s older south side neighborhoods. This line services approximately 58,000 sanitary connections in south Edmonton.
The Mill Creek combined trunk services the Edmonton region highlighted on the map.
Why is this project important?
In 2020, crews had identified large holes in the trunk as well as a deteriorated manhole. An emergency repair was completed in Mill Creek Ravine, which involved impacts to the trail system, tree removal and heavy equipment being transported and utilized on site.
