Farmer and landholder Sten Berg wanted to create a planned community on his family’s property ... a planned community that would maximize open space, preserve wetlands, and respect the beauty and serenity of the land he loved.


For eight years, Sten petitioned Alberta regulators for a permit to install an environmentally friendly Orenco® Effluent Sewer to collect the wastewater from his master-planned community. In 2006, the system was installed and “Habitat Acres” became the first self-contained effluent sewer community in this fast-growing Canadian province.
