The City of Flin Flon is connecting the community to the new water treatment plant this week. The Lakeview subdivision was connected yesterday, Mile 84 today, Birchview and Willowvale Thursday night or Friday and the rest of the city Friday and Saturday. Director of Works and Operations Rick Bacon say you will notice a difference as they’re expecting the clarity of the water to be a big improvement with the filters, the odor of the water should be improved especially in the summer time when they get kind of a lakeish smell, and the color of the water is much brighter than we’re used to.
Bacon adds if you experience higher than usual water pressure contact City Hall immediately. If you find cloudy, murky or discolored water run your taps for a short period of time. It will also take a while to adjust chlorine levels but at no time will they exceed regulated levels.
