Redwater will have one less headache.
Council recently decided to hand over their truck fill station to Sturgeon County on a five-year agreement.
"Our truck fill is old and has given us a lot of grief," said Redwater mayor Mel Smith. "Our residents are happy, the county residents are happy and the industrial users are happy."
The town will have to do some minor upgrades to the unit, as Sturgeon County uses a flowpoint system for billing.
Redwater was looking at getting rid of their dated water station, but with new technology, the process of dispensing water could become simpler than ever.
"Everything will be on an electronic system with a credit card style receiver," added Smith. "This will be a far better system."
Despite losing the majority of their revenue, the town will still be in charge of maintenance of the truck fill station.
