Village Services

Water

The Village drinking water is obtained from eight Artesian wells. This water is is then put through two RO skids that cut down the flouride and sodium. The regional treatment plant is located at 102 A Cross Street, with the eight wells we have enough water to supply the surrounding communities as well. Water Charges are $42.25 minimum charge plus $2.00 per 1000 gallons. Please contact the Village of Foremost for more details. (403) 867-3733

This water is very soft which makes it great for bathing and washing clothes. However, it is high in fluoride and soda which gives it a unique taste. The well water should NOT BE used to water house plants or lawns and gardens for an extended period of time. 

Foremost is fortunate enough to have an irrigation system which is designed to provide water for residential lawns and gardens. The irrigation water is drawn from a reservoir located west of the Village. This water is not metered but is provided during the summer months at a charge of $75.00 yearly.

Reminder- Sewer System

Due to past sewer problems, please do not dispose of egg shells, cooking grease, cooking oil, feminine hygiene products, condoms, or baby wipes through the sewer systems. As well, it has been found that over use of liquid fabric softeners and powder laundry detergents cause a buildup in sewer lines, so please keep that in mind when using these items. The Village of Foremost appreciates your cooperation with this issue in helping to keep our sewer lines clean!

 

Garbage Collection

Garbage is picked up and hauled to the refuse grounds each Friday. Residents are asked to have their garbage neatly boxed or bagged and left at the rear of their property. A bi-monthly charge of $30.00 is collected for the South Forty Waste Services Commission requisition.

Keep Bags to a 50lbs maximum.
