The Water Crisis

The village's Public Works staff is still working on the loss of water issue. We've found a couple of small leaks or discrepancies in the system, but we still can't account for all the water we lose each month.

Every municipal water system has a certain amount of loss, but not nearly as high as Beiseker's! My compliments go to our Public Works staff who have braved some pretty nasty weather trying to track down some of this missing water.

The Kneehill Regional Water Services Commission is still in communication with the provincial government in hopes a new water fee schedule can still be worked out. Right now the seven municipalities in the commission are really hurting while trying to cover these huge expenses created, in part, when the commission was not allowed to sell its water to waiting customers!! Stay tuned!
