Fire Ban vs. Fire Advisory

For the 2024 season, the Village of Acme will be notifying residents of any fire advisories or fire bans through the Village of Acme website.

A fire advisory means no open fires or fires requiring a burning permit. An advisory only allows for, recreational fires in covered fire pits, approved fire pits in campgrounds and parks, propane, natural gas, charcoal, and pellet barbeques, grills, or smokers. All other fires are not permitted until the advisory is lifted.

A fire ban means all fires of any type using any form of fuel are prohibited in the Village.

AMWWP Grant Approval

Project 1: Pumphouse / Reservoir

This projects is anticipated to cost upwards of $3.9 million. The Government grant received will cover up to 75% of this amount. The remaining $1 million for this project will be the responsibility of the Village. 

The pumphouse / reservoir project will upgrade the pumphouse (which pumps water from the Village's water reservoir into each property in the Village), including back up systems and double the Village's reservoir capacity. Long term, this will allow for community growth. 

Project 2: Lift Station / Force Main

The lift station / force main will be installed at the far North end of the Heritage area. This will help create a redundancy protection in our wastewater disposal system.  This will also provided some necessary wastewater infrastructure to allow for future community growth.

Thank you to the Government of Alberta for their support for these 2 major capital projects!
