Please adhere to the following for removal of dead fish for the Summer Village of Crystal Springs:

1- Please place dead fish into a plastic tote or bucket. Please do not use garbage bags as we can not accept them (We will be unable to provide the service if we do not adhere to this)

2- We ask residents to help out each other and look at neighbouring beaches. If neighbours are not out please help in their absence.

3 – A trailer will be placed at the WEST END (by the demolished old Pepsi store) at the entrance to Crystal Springs beginning Tuesday at 9 am. The trailer will remain till 6pm, and then be removed on a daily basis. We ask residents if possible to delay dumping the fish till later in the day to eliminate them sitting in very hot sun.

4-Do NOT use your dumpster to dispose of the fish

We will continue to monitor was needed. Data from the SVCS research Buoy indicates very low lake oxygen levels and the fish kill is likely to continue, but hopefully be reduced. Crystal Springs will therefore continue to provide a disposal trailer until July 26, assessing the situation at that time. The County is also now allowing fish dumping  at the Lakedell station (with bags), but be aware that will cost you $35.

Transfer Station option for the Summer Village of Crystal Springs Residents: The County of Wetaskiwin will now accept dead fish at the Lakedell Transfer Station. Please adhere to the indicated conditions if you wish to take the dead fish to the Lakedell Transfer Station. 


  • All fish must be bagged in plastic and tightly secured.
  • The transfer stations will allow the fish to be placed in the regular roll off bins; place carefully, not thrown on top of jagged glass.
  • Each resident will be charged a fee to drop off the dead fish. The fee is the same as a regular transfer station garbage drop off. ($35)

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work through this matter.
