    Share Sheds at Rural Transfer Station

    As of today, July 1, 2015, all Rural Transfer Stations will have an operating Share Shed.  This means you can leave a variety of items that are in good condition for free.  And while there dropping off your waste you take items for yourself, a friend, a family member, or even a neighbour!  

    We have been piloting this program at Prespatou, Rose Prairie, Cecil Lake, and Tomslake over the last year and have been really successful and a great benefit to the sites.  This program is now expanded to Pink Mountain, Wonowon, Buick Creek, Goodlow, and Kelly Lake Transfer Stations.

    Romedo Springs Update

    Due to the continuing presence of coliform, Romedo Springs will be closed until further notice.  

    The PRRD tests the Romedo Springs for the presence of E.coli and total coliforms.  Due to previous tests where the presence of total coliforms were present, Romedo Springs was closed.  The latest test results indicated that the results were negative for both E.coli and total coliforms.  A second consecutive negative test result is required before the facility can be considered to be re-opened.  The test results are expected to be available by June 19, 2015.  If the facility is reopened, the water is only to be used for agricultural purposes and not be used for drinking.
