This story is brought to you in part by ParemTech's PT Level


When a fire broke out in the water treatment plant in Kerrobert on Januray 5, it caused a depressurization of the water system leading to a precautionary drinking water advisory. On January 6, town spokesperson, Monica Merkosky said that the "source of the fire was unknown but that everything was back to normal and the town was just waiting for the results of the samples to lift the advisory"

According to Merkosky, the town's source of drinking water is groundwater and about 11,000 people are affected by the advisory

"The town is built on a big hill," she says. "It is known as Kerrobert on the Rise."

Kerrobert is located in west central Saskatchewan. It is approximately 65 kilometres east of the Saskatchewan/Alberta border and 180 kilometres west of Saskatoon. It is known for its large water tower built in 1914 and clearly visible from 15 kilometres away
