SAINT-ADELPHE, QC: REPLACEMENT OF AGING PUMPING EQUIPMENT CAUSE OF BWA, QC



This story is brought to you in part by Biomass Recycle


On July 20, 2017, a Preventive Boil Water advisory was issued for the Municipalité de Saint-Adelphe, Québec. The reason given on the notice for this protective measure was that the municipality was carrying out work on the pumping station, as a result, there was "a risk that drinking water could become contaminated."

In a communiqué, the Inspector for Drinking Water Quality, Dany Lapointe, confirmed the reason the advisory was issued and added "the work was carried out by Groupe Québéco." The group is specialized in municipal and industrial plumbing and process mechanics.

Lapointe asserted that the work was necessary because of the "out of date accessories." The pieces that were replaced date back to the original installation in 1993. When the work was completed "the employees carried out an on-site cleaning [of the machinery] to eliminate any bacteria."

The Municipality has carried out "four water tests at a certified laboratory," over a period of two days to assure compliance. Lapointe underlined that "according to the advisory, [issued by] Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, it was not necessary to carry out the tests." It was out of precaution that Saint-Adelphe "preferred to carry out the tests just the same."

The advisory is expected to last a week.
