Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant – Planned Plant Outage

“Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant staff have advised the Water Security Agency (WSA) that a planned shutdown at the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will result in the shutdown and depressurization of the SaskWater Buffalo Pound West and North Pipelines for approximately 14 hours. Although there is a very low risk of contamination, the potential for contamination exists due to the depressurization and the natural degradation of the chlorine residual in the water as it sits in the line. Therefore, effective at 7:30 a.m. on March 13th 2020, the WSA is issuing a Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) for the Dufferin Water Association.

The Villages of Bethune, Disley and the Qu’Appelle Valley Water Users are exempt from this advisory due to their offline storage and re-chlorination capabilities.

An outage of the BP water treatment plant is tentatively scheduled for:
– Friday March 13 from approximately 07:30 to 21:30 and
– Sunday March 15 from approximately 08:30 to 14:30.

The shutdown is required to accommodate capital work projects at the plant. If the planned outage is canceled, rescheduled or altered the WSA will review and react accordingly”.
