Fort Steele Residents Association
Cranbrook municipal sewage is currently receiving only primary treatment before being piped to storage ponds, then used for spray irrigation. The spray irrigation is occurring within a community watershed and within a 1/2 kilometer of residential wells. Both leakage from the storage ponds and the spray irrigation are believed to be contaminating local wells. The goal of the project is to determine legal options to prevent further contamination of the local wells.
