Water Upgrade Weeks 5-7

The water plant is no stranger to contractors these days.

The concrete pads have been filled and cured. Four pressurized tanks have been installed. One electric motor and vertical turbine pump installed. Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) have been installed and configured.

Once the second drive is installed, we will slowly ramp up water pressure to the town. The final pressure to be determined at a later date based on user feedback and existing infrastructure limitations.

The biological media has been delivered into the treatment facility and it makes the water plant feel like a very cozy place.

The installation of a third natural gas heater has been completed but is not yet being utilized. Once the new filtration system is operational, it is vital to warm the building to roughly room temperature for the biology to optimally perform.

Presently, work is ongoing with electrical systems, namely transformers, wiring, and control boxes. A new electrical service delivering 600 Volts of power to the facility to be installed by SaskPower at a later date.

Much work remains but the progress is rapid and is following schedule.
