Water Security Agency Urges Residents To “Watch Your Waste” This Recreational Season

Released on May 24, 2019

As resort communities, cottagers and campsites gear up for another busy Saskatchewan summer, residents are reminded to use the proper disposal methods for septic waste.

Improper disposal of septic waste can cause damage to the environment and poses health and safety issues for residents, pets, livestock and wildlife.  Improper management of septic waste also presents a real potential threat to our provincial water resources.

Septic haulers must possess a valid permit to transport and dispose of liquid domestic sewage.  Septic haulers must have in their possession a permit outlining their specific operating requirements and must only dispose of waste in accordance with their permit conditions.

When hiring a septic waste hauling operator, residents are encouraged to ask to see the haulers’ Water Security Agency issued permit and inquire where the waste is being disposed.

If residents are aware that septic waste is not being disposed of properly, or if they observe improper dumping, the offense can be reported by calling the Ministry of Environment’s toll-free TIP line at 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 on your SaskTel cell phone.

For more information about the hauling and proper disposal of septic waste, contact the Water Security Agency at 306-787-7911.
