 Municipal Services

ENMAX Encompass Inc. is contracted to provide Customer Care and invoicing for municipal services in the following areas:

Municipal Q&A

​​​​​​​​​City of Calgary


The City of Calgary provides safe, reliable drinking water to over one million Calgarians and members of the surrounding communities of Airdrie and Chestermere. Two water treatment plants and a complex network of underground pipes, water mains, reservoirs and pump stations deliver this valuable resource to our customers each day.

Wastewater (sewer)

The wastewater system protects the public health and the environment by collecting and treating wastewater from residences, schools, hospitals, businesses and industries. Wastewater enters the system through sinks, toilets, bathtubs and major appliances where it travels through underground pipes before arriving at one of three wastewater treatment plants for treatment.

Storm drainage

The storm drainage system helps prevent flooding by diverting rain and snowmelt into the nearest river or creek through curb-side drains and underground pipes. The system also includes retention ponds to hold excess water during heavy rainstorms events.

Blue cart recycling

Blue cart is a weekly residential recycling pick-up service for single family households up to and including fourplexes.

Waste management

The waste management charge helps offset the costs of disposing and managing residential garbage at The City's three landfills. It does not relate to residential garbage collection, which is supported by property taxes.

The town's water intake is located on the banks of the Oldman River and collects a combination of subsurface and surface water. The quality of raw water entering the treatment plant is normally quite high meaning minimal treatment is normally required.


The town operates a mechanical sewage treatment plant located adjacent to the water plant.


In Fort Macleod, garbage collection is a municipal service. Additionally, the town is a member of the Willow Creek Regional Waste Commission. This Commission operates the landfill near Parkland. Waste collected by the town's contract collector, O'Sullivan Collections, is delivered to this site. Individuals wishing to dispose of trash not collected by the town can also haul to this site.
