COCHRANE WATER TREATMENT & DISTRIBUTION

Water

Did you know Cochrane’s water treatment plant can treat up to 22 million litres of water per day? Water is drawn from the Bow River and is treated using a combination of clarification, micro-filtration and multi-barrier disinfection using ultraviolet light and chlorine before it is distributed to Cochrane homes and businesses. Cochrane has an extensive quality control program that includes continuous online monitoring for chlorine residuals, turbidity, PH, particle counts, UV transmittance and temperature to ensure water quality meets or exceeds federal and provincial standards.

Once the water leaves the water plant and enters the distribution system, spot-checks for quality and bacteriological analysis are collected to ensure standards remain within legislated guidelines. Interested in the water quality analysis reports? Check them here: cochrane.ca/265/Water-Treatment-Plant.

Water treatment is monitored 24/7 by highly trained government-certified Town water staff, who respond immediately to any issue detected. Homeowners can also contact Town staff if they have questions or concerns about their water: cochrane.ca/Water or 403-851-2590.
