Existing Sturgeon Heights Reservoir and Pump Station


The Sturgeon Heights Reservoir and Pump Station, located at 37 Sunset Boulevard, is the main St Albert reservoir which receives water from the City of Edmonton supply line and works with the two other structures in the community to distribute potable water to St Albert residents, schools and businesses. As the oldest structure of its kind in St Albert, it can no longer be upgraded and must be rebuilt to ensure the long-term reliable and safe distribution of potable water for the community.

To ensure water services in the City are not disrupted, the current reservoir and pump station must remain operational while a new reservoir and pump station is being built. This means the new structure must be located within Salisbury Park in order to take advantage of the current underground infrastructure, as well as to maintain water pressure and meet demand requirements. Once construction of the new reservoir and pump station is complete and operational, the current reservoir and pump station will be decommissioned and restoration of the park will take place.

Unlike the current concrete reservoir and pump station, the goal is to build a new facility that blends into the natural environment and is aesthetically appealing to the surrounding residents and park users. Preliminary design will be completed by ISL Engineering and Land Services on behalf of the City’s Utilities department.

At this time, the City is conducting public participation online for all projects due to provincial health measures as a result of COVID-19. Three phases of stakeholder and community engagement are tentatively planned to take place in spring, summer and late fall of 2021. These virtual participation opportunities will enable public feedback on the concept design.

Once the new reservoir is fully operational, the old facility will be removed and the area will be remediated. Public input received during the design portion of the project will also help shape what this portion of the park will look like in the future.

Visit the Virtual Open House and provide your feedback from May 25 - June 8.
