With the completion of the recent upgrade, Cochrane's plant has one of the strictest approvals in Alberta, and it is one of only a few that combines three state-of-the-art processes under one roof, along with a control system that rivals any modern manufacturing plant in operation.
In 2008, Town Council decided that expanding our current water treatment plant will enable us to use the remaining capacity of our existing license. This option is the most cost effective and involves the least risk. By upgrading our existing water supply system, we will increase the capacity of the Town’s existing water treatment plant from the current 10 million litres of water to 22 million litres per day, with provision for an upgrade to our maximum water allocation of 29.7 million litres per day.
The Town has also partnered with ExactET on a local weather station that can send information to irrigation systems so that they only use the water your soil really needs. We are also working with Parks to pilot irrigation systems controlled by this weather station.
As an organization, the Town has a policy in place to look for ways to reduce water consumption in the Town operations as well as in the community. We continually research new initiatives to consider for water conservation.
