Will I notice a difference in the water?

In the Town of Bonnyville and the area of the Municipal District of Bonnyville served by the Town, you should notice an improved quality of the water, especially in the summer. 

The new source (Cold Lake) is a significant improvement in quality over Moose Lake where it is common to have Algae bloom in the summer. Cold Lake water is treated through membrane filtration versus the Moose Lake water which is treated with chemical addition and filter media. There will be an improvement in taste, odour and colour.

In the M.D. of Bonnyville, Ardmore, Fort Kent, the residents currently served along the line from Cold Lake and Cold Lake First Nations, there should be no noticeable difference.

For all, the water sourced from the new waterline will be disinfected with Chloramination instead of Chlorine.
