Water and Sewer
Part of the Town of Roblin's water and waste management strategy is an engineered wetlands to hold extra effluent. A poplar grove was also planted to absorb moisture. The sewage system consists of a four-cell lagoon with an effluent irrigation system. Once the sewage reaches the fourth cell, it is naturally purified and the effluent is irrigated on to crop land.
Due to the many lakes and rivers, Roblin possesses an available supply of water. Lake of the Prairies was constructed in 1968 by impounding the Assiniboine River near Shellmouth Manitoba. The lake which formed behind this dam is 30 miles long and has a surface area of 15,000 acres. The dam was originally built as a flood control measure.
