Tragic Event in our Community
The events of last Friday, October 6, have shocked our whole community. As most of us looked forward to the Thanksgiving week-end, for the family of local businessman we all know as "Joe from Fas Gas" , sadly Thanksgiving was not able to bring the same joy. Following what appears to be a gas and dash gone wrong, the thoughts and prayers of the whole community go out to Joe's family, who have suffered the loss of a husband and father. As they mourn the loss of a loved one, and as many in...
Water Update - October 4
Further to last weeks update, we can now report that the “soft start-up” on the additional aeration is now well under way.. Currently all eight lines, consisting of three diffusers each are now operational but at 25% capacity. This will be ramped up gradually over the next few weeks to continue to minimize the risks of a turn-over event. As previously noted, it is possible, but unlikely, that taste and odour may be slightly impacted during the startup phase due to disturbance in the r...

Water Update - September 27
Work on installation of the additional diffuser aeration has now been completed. A “soft start-up” will now take place which means the compressors will be slowly turned on over a period of time, to make sure that the water does not go through what is referred to as a turn-over event, causing the nutrients to "flip" and which causes release of all nutrients, sediment and total loss of oxygen. It is possible, but unlikely, that taste and odour may be slightly impacted during the startup pha...
Water Update - Sept 20
Work has commenced this week on the installation of the diffuser aeration system as the raw water ponds. The wet weather has impacted the installation by a few days, but it is hoped the work will be completed by the start of next week. The installation will permit the diffusion aeration to work on increasing and maintaining the oxygenation of the ponds over the coming months, and ultimately ensure full cycle and reduction of the nutrients and bacteria impacting the health of water body.
