Lift stations, a vital part of our wastewater system, are used throughout the city to lift wastewater from low-lying areas to higher areas where it can flow by gravity to one of our three wastewater treatment plants. The Roxboro and Sunnyside sanitary lift stations were built in 1956 and 1958, respectively, and were designed to standards of that era. As the City of Calgary has grown over the past 60 years the requirements for these lift stations have changed.

Both of these sanitary lift stations will be replaced with more resilient structures that will ensure Calgarians continue to receive a high level of sanitary service. We would like to get input from residents on the final design of the two lift stations – click on the links below to learn more about each project and provide input on the design options that are being considered.

Thank you to everyone who provided input. Click on the tiles below to learn more about what we asked, what we heard and what we did.
