Town Utilities (Water, Sewer, Gas, Electric, Cable)



The Town of Coaldale receives its drinkable water supply from the City of Lethbridge. After the Town closed its water treatment facility in fall 1999, a large underground pipeline from Lethbridge to Coaldale was constructed. The current water rates are as follows:

  • Residential rate: $23.10/month + $1.093 per cubic metre of consumption
  • Commercial rate: $23.10/month +$1.093 per cubic metre of consumption
  • Bulk water rate (per cubic metre): $3.66




Coaldale uses a passive sewer treatment system to handle its wastewater needs. Over a series of lagoons, or “cells,” wastewater is gradually processed, treated, tested and released back into the local river system. Throughout this process, oxygen is pumped into each cell, feeding the organisms that destroy bacteria. A treatment cycle lasts 43 days and avoids the use of chemicals which over time can disrupt local ecosystems.

Recently, the Town purchased and installed a series of windmills that power the pumps circulating oxygen into the wastewater holding cells.

The current per cubic metre fees for wastewater disposal are as follows:

  • Residential and commercial rate: $15.70/month + $1.063 per cubic metre (based on the average water consumption of the winter months)

Storm Drainage

  • $7.95/month
