The Model Process Reference Document to Guide Municipal Consideration of Subdivision and Development Using Private Sewage Treatment Systems provides a guide to evaluate a proposed subdivision that will rely on private sewage systems. The guide helps determine if private sewage systems are a suitable wastewater treatment method for the proposed subdivision. It is available in the Report Archives on our website at www.aamdc.com under Advocacy > Publications > Reports The Model Process Pilot Project was announced at the Spring 2008 Convention. The locations selected for the Model Process Pilot Projects were the MD of Rockyview, Lac Ste. Anne County and the County of Vermillion River. The municipalities were selected from a group of very worthy candidates, based on the need to represent the variety of the AAMDC membership in terms of administrative capacity, location, geography and level of development. The municipalities will use the model process as a guide to make good planning decisions when dealing with developments using private septage systems. Funded by Alberta Municipal Affairs, the project will test the Model Process until September 2010. At that time, a revised Model Process will be distributed and training sessions will be held for all AAMDC members interested in using the Model Process. The training sessions will communicate best practices to help municipalities integrate the tool into their current processes.
