The Sanitary Servicing Strategy Fund (SSSF) program was developed as a way to combine the resources of developers, new home builders, the City and EPCOR to build the largest deep sanitary sewer trunk lines. These trunk lines will serve residential and non-residential growth in Edmonton’s new development areas. The SSSF is used to build sewers larger than 1.05 metres in diameter and serve areas larger than 1,400 hectares. 

The ​ SSSF Trunk Network Map shows both existing and proposed future trunks. The network map depicts 2 potential sewer trunk alignments for the South Edmonton Sanitary Sewer (SESS) trunk flows terminating at either Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant or the Alberta Capital Region Water Commission Plant.

This dual routing responds to Utility Committee’s direction to show the 2 possible routes until a decision on the SESS trunk routing is needed. A decision is not expected to be needed before 2030 at the earliest at which time the City administration will advance a routing recommendation to Utility Committee for deliberation that reflects public engagement and regional input.
