Slave Lake Utility Bills to be Increased

Residents of Slave Lake could see their utility bills increased due to the construction of two new projects in the area.

A new raw water line is required for a secure source of good-quality water for the water treatment plant, and is an $18.6-million project, while the sewage treatment plant requires upgrading, and will cost $14.1-million.

It’s being reported that between these two projects the average utility bill will increase by approximately $29 per month.
