The Town of The Pas chief water plant operator addressed town council at last week’s council meeting where he informed the town that improvements need to be made to the communities’ water capacity.
The town currently doesn’t have an adequate water storage capacity and a very limited amount of potable water to distribute to the community in cases where the town loses its source of water to be treated.
Many other towns keep water stored in case there is an interruption with the community’s water source so that they can provide residents with potable water without having to issue a boil water advisory.
The Chief Water Plant operator said that it would be beneficial for the town to have a larger storage capacity in case another issue with the water treatment plant arises.
This issue will be talked about within the communities engineering department and they will discuss a possible solution.
