When can we expect to have water flowing through the line to Ardmore, Fort Kent and Bonnyville?

One of the challenges at the Water Treatment Plant is the replacement of an intake screen which should be performed during the summer period and also requires the plant to be shut down for an extended period. The Town of Bonnyville does not have enough storage capacity in its existing reservoir to be shut down for the length of time required, so we cannot be on Cold Lake water until after the screen is replaced.

Completion of the change out of the screen is scheduled for late summer 2020 and as a result we anticipate that the conversion from the existing Bonnyville Water Treatment Plant to the Cold Lake supply line will be in early September 2020.
