Water Update - Sept 13
Our update this week, includes the news that work on the increased aeration for the raw water ponds will be commencing next week. Council approved the amendement to Capital Budget at the last regular meeting of Council.

We ask residents to continue to let us know of any notice...
WATER UPDATE - Sept 6
Last week we advised of the findings of the raw water pond study, and the recommendation to introduce diffuser type aeration at the bottom of the pond, rather than on the surface. This type of aeration is also designed to keep the surface of the ponds open over the winter months to enable ongoing completion of nutrient and bacteria lifecycle and to restore balance to the ponds. The installation will be started very shortly. Our testing results from Alberta Health have continued to come ba...

Water Update - August 27
We received back the results of the recent water analysis that was undertaken. Algae and cyanobacteria were the cursers that were looked for within our raw water ponds and we are happy to report that there is no cyanobacteria bloom present which is good news. Everything showed within acceptable ranges and which leads us to believe that the odour is caused by naturally occurring bacteria called Actinomycetes. Actinomycetes are closely allied with microscopic plants and are one celled, fill...
