Water Supply & Sewer
In the spring of 2019, the upgraded water system was officially commissioned. The new raw water source is two groundwater wells, which will draw water from an underground aquifer (Hatfield Aquifer). The water plant was retrofitted utilizing much of the existing infrastructure while changing the process. A remineralization bed is used to balance the pH levels instead of chemicals which foster healthier water. For disinfection liquid sodium hypochlorite is used. Installation of a reverse osmosis membrane unit ensures Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines are met.
The Town of Lanigan WTP Reverse Osmosis System under the Provincial Territorial Infrastructure Component – Drinking Water – Drinking Water Treatment Infrastructure renewed the process for water treatment by retrofitting and utilizing existing infrastructure with modification to accommodate a reverse osmosis system. The two wells are located 2,312 metres from the water treatment plant. Supply lines are placed in the right of way along Agnew Avenue east to Hoover Street and south to tie into the current facility.
Providing water quality that meets or exceeds the Canadian Drinking Water Quality guidelines contributes to improve the health of our community, which is of utmost importance to our Council.
There is approximately 15,763 meters of water lines in our community.
In 2017 the sewage lagoon located at NW 10-33-22 W2M was expanded with a new primary cell and conversion of the existing primary cell to a storage cell to meet the needs of the community and provide for compliance with new legislation. The existing force main was extended to the new primary cell. Control structures were replaced to ensure environmental protection.
The main lift station located at the corner of Hoover Street & Industrial Drive was last upgraded in 2017 when all internal piping was replaced. The second lift station is located on Wexford Street. A small lift station along Vetshome Drive assists the removal of sewage on the north side of the community.
We have approximately 15,763 meters of sewer lines in our community.
