A 30 kilometre long water pipeline to supply non-potable water to Melville and area has been completed.
SaskWater spokesperson Courtney Mihalicz says the line will bring water from 2 new wells to the city’s water treatment plant.
“The second phase of this project with the City of Melville is to build a new water treatment plant,” she said. “Construction on that is just beginning, and it will be some time until that pipeline is actually connected to the new water treatment plant.”
Work on the line started in August, and wrapped up last Friday, and construction on the control buildings for the wells should be completed next year.
The federal and provincial governments have contributed 13.2 million dollars toward the 13.7 million total cost.
