The RM conducted extensive study with experts to assess affordable, long-term solutions. Specific work included a Concept Plan for Schanzenfeld and Reinfeld (2009, completed by Genivar) and a Wastewater Feasibility Study (2011, completed by AECOM).

The design and engineering of a wastewater system to serve Reinfeld and Schanzenfeld; used to arrive at costs and apply for funding.

The RM of Stanley entered into an agreement with the City of Winkler for use of the new Winker Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, an initial consideration before applying for federal and provincial funding.

Application was made to the Government of Canada and Province of Manitoba’s Investing in Canada Infrastructure Fund, anticipated to provide 73% of project funding.

A community survey conducted in September 2019 was the first step in a consultation process to help the Municipality understand the needs of residents as it prepared to develop an actual sewer proposal. A summary of survey results and how the RM would address the feedback was mailed to homeowners and posted online in December 2019 (CLICK HERE).  

In the following months, municipal officials had extensive discussions with MLAs, provincial government departments, the Manitoba Water Services Board and consulting engineers to determine the type of sewer system that would provide the best value to the community and ideas for addressing resident’s priorities and concerns. A more detailed project proposal was developed, including firmer technical details, cost estimates, timelines and incentive plans.

The Municipality is planning to present the more detailed project proposal to residents for further feedback. The community’s response to this proposal will help Council determine whether the project will proceed.

Because of the current public health restrictions on gatherings, the timing and format of this next consultation phase is unknown at this time.  We'll keep you updated on our plans and make sure you receive the details you need.
