City of Brandon Hosting Water Treatment Facility Upgrade Project Open House on March 26th

March 18, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Development Services Division is pleased to invite all members of the community to learn more about its multi-year Water Treatment Facility Upgrade Project at a public open house on the evening of Tuesday, March 26th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Cultural Resource Centre at the A.R. McDiarmid Civic Complex (638 Princess Avenue, East Entrance).

The Water Treatment Facility Upgrade Project will include several construction projects over the next several years and aims to improve water quality in Brandon in order to meet current and future regulations.

The first phase of the project will begin this year with the construction of a chemical building to the immediate west of the existing water treatment plant located at 108-26th Street. This dedicated building will be used to safely store and handle all chemicals used to treat the municipal water supply, eliminating the needs for on-site chlorine gas storage, and will provide capacity to explore lead-leaching reduction strategies to benefit older areas of Brandon where water service connections made of lead may still exist. Future phases of the project include the construction of a new membrane treatment facility, a new river intake, and upgrades to existing portions of the current treatment facility.

All members of the public are invited to attend the March 26th open house and learn more about the upgrades, the level of funding currently allocated for the project, and what funding will be required in the future. Refreshments will be provided.

The City of Brandon encourages all residents to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about its Water Treatment Facility Upgrade Project, which will be integral to improving water quality, water infrastructure, safety, and reliability, as well as in the planning for expansion and growth in Brandon.
