UV Filtration Construction has Begun on Well #8

Published on: Sep 9, 2020
Construction to install a UV (ultraviolet) reactor system and rehabilitate four new pump buildings and wells has begun.

After the success of the 2019's pilot program to add UV Filtration to Well #5 to achieve primary disinfection in Shaunavon's water system, Shaunavon's Council has moved forward with investing in our local water systems.
Work is near completion on Well #8, and once finished, Wells #1 & #2 will be taken offline to do upgrades, followed by Wells #9 & #10.

During construction and upgrades, water services will continue as per usual. There will be no interruptions to water services.

The Town of Shaunavon is committed to the safety of our residents, as well as those in the surrounding RMs, which is why we are investing infrastructure related to our drinking water to increase access to potable water while improving health and safety.
