Village of Glenwood
 

Novel Coronavirus (COVID19):

What is the Village doing?

     As a municipality, our key role is to ensure the operation of essential infrastructure and services, such as potable water and sewer. Our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of the public and our employees. The village will continue to provide information to the public on our website, bulletin boards and via Facebook. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call the village office.

     Our closed potable water system is secure and controlled via automation. The source of the water is protected and enters a closed and filtered process. There is no public assess to the water treatment plant. The water is tested daily by one of our two qualified operators. Tests are sent weekly to the provincial testing facility.

     The sewer operations are regularly maintained and fully operational. Please assist us by not disposing of feminine products, paper towels, wet wipes, diapers or any other products other than toilet paper down the toilet. These items cause blockages in the system.

The Village of Glenwood is a rural, family oriented community northwest of Cardston. Originally part of the great Cochrane Ranch, 640 acres were divided off to become the Village of Glenwood. The Town site was divided into blocks of 8 acres each, and building lots of one acre each with streets 8 rods wide running at right angles through the Town. When the Town blocks ended, ten acre lots were surveyed so that the Town residents could have a small pasture for a few cows.
