Water

The Municipality provides water services to our citizens through a variety of facilities. Water is produced from nine high quality ground wells and is treated at four treatment plants located in Coleman, Blairmore, Bellevue and Hillcrest. It is then stored in one of four concrete reservoirs and distributed by a complex piping system consisting of pressure boosting stations and pressure reducing stations that are required because of the varying elevations throughout the community. Water is also produced and stored in the Sentinel area west of Coleman for fire protection purposes.

All systems are monitored 24/7 by either an alarm system or through a satellite monitoring system called SCADA. Qualified Municipal employees also check and take samples from each facility for testing on a daily basis to ensure we are providing a safe, quality service. The Chinook Health Region tests our water weekly as well as an independent laboratory at regular intervals.
