BLACKFOOT WATER UTILITY

Water Plant Information

 

The Water Plant was constructed in 2004. The Facility is located at the corner of 52nd St. and 52nd Ave. (LSD is NW-1-50-2-4W4). The plant provides drinking water to approximately 600 residents.

Groundwater sources are provided from three wells. The total flow is 28-30 US gallons per minute.

Raw water undergoes pre-chlorination (disinfection) as well as potassium permanganate dosage and proceeds to the contact tank for additional reaction time. It then flows through two filters containing greensand media and anthracite coal media. This media is effective for iron and manganese removal together with other dissolved metals as well as odour removal and improves taste. The filters are continuously recharged with potassium permanganate which renews the oxidation properties of the media.

Water storage tanks consist of two 20,000 US gallon capacity fiberglass tanks (approx. 120 m3 water).

The SCADA system was implemented early 2010. The system continuously monitors the Total Chlorine (disinfection mg/l), distribution pressure and pumps status, reservoir level, well pump status and building temperature. The system will send alerts and also allows access to current status and historical trends by remote desktop.
