Russell Creek water system getting upgrades

Construction began Nov. 13 on upgrades to the Russell Creek water system

Construction began Nov. 13 on upgrades to the Russell Creek water system, District of Clearwater reports.

The upgrades to the Russell Creek intake water treatment process include:

• UV disinfection

• Replace existing pump with two new, more efficient, pumps

• New monitoring, chlorination and safety equipment.

• Upgraded radio and operator interface for improved system monitoring

• Additional insulation (exterior cladding) at the booster station to reduce energy use.

The work on the multi-barrier treatment process is expected to be completed by January.

Currently, the District relies on three sources to deliver water to community; two groundwater wells and the Russell Creek surface water intake. These multiple sources allow the District to maintain water flow to the community during these upgrades; thus resulting in minimal disruption to residents during the construction process.

As part of an ongoing initiative to improve water quality for the community the District took advantage of the “Towns of Tomorrow” grant program for funding.

 

Should you have any questions or require further information regarding this project, please feel free to contact Jared Braunstein, public works superintendent at 250.674.2257.
