Water Treatment Plant

The water treatment plant, located at 141 West Terrace Point, began operation on April 5, 1998. A minor upgrade to the plant was completed in 2001 to give the plant a treatment capacity of approximately 11 million litres per day.

The plant was expanded and upgraded in 2008-2009 to increase treatment capacity to approximately 22 million litres per day. Cochrane’s water is now treated using a combination of clarifying and micro-filtering, multi-barrier disinfection using ultraviolet light and chlorine before it is distributed to local consumers.
