Condo fees are made up of two components: 1) Subdivision operating costs, including: grounds maintenance, snow removal, gate and streetlight maintenance, legal and accounting fees, utilities and management fees, and miscellaneous expenses. These are detailed in our annual budget and audited financial statements. 2) Contribution to the capital reserve fund for the eventual replacement of the condo corporation’s capital assets. These are the roads, streetlights and gate.
Where does the wastewater go?
All units require a two-stage septic system. Solid waste is collected in the first tank and should be removed as needed by a septic tank cleaning company . These costs are the responsibility of the owner. Grey water is run off to the second stage and pumped to the sewer, where it flows to the Strathcona County lagoon, north of the golf course.
Where does the water supply come from?
Properties of Northern Bear (PNB) is our water supplier. The pumphouse is located along RR 222 just north of our subdivision on Hole 15. PNB gets the water from Strathcona County via a waterline. They are regulated by the Alberta Utilities Commission. Strathcona County drinking water comes from the North Saskatchewan River, which originates at the Saskatchewan Glacier in the Rocky Mountains, 500km southwest of Edmonton. Strathcona County receives its water from EPCOR Water. EPCOR Water operates two water treatment plants in Edmonton, producing a total capacity of 530 million litres of water per day.
