Public Notice – Aesthetic Water Quality

August 15, 2016 – Public Notice: Aesthetic Water Quality August 15, 2016 – The City’s water system reached peak demand where all five wells were pumping directly into the distribution lines. Some residents noticed discolouration in their tap water. Because the fifth well pump kicked on suddenly, it stirred up iron and manganese in the lines. This is similar to the spring distribution flushing. If you notice this, please run your tap until clear. Find out how to reduce the demand on our system.

Water Meter Project Update

August 3, 2016 – The residential water meter project was the most publicly debated infrastructure upgrade in recent history. Installation of water meters for existing water connections was completed July 31. Although the initial per unit cost increased due to a change in the number of units and the dramatic decline in the US exchange rate, the project is on budget.
