Advisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by Lawson Mills Biomass Solutions Ltd

The Village of Meacham has been under a Precautionary Boil Water Advisory (PDWA) since April 30, 2018. The reasons given for the order were both operational and water quality related.

The Water Security Agency notice stated that the "advisory applies to all users of the Village of Meacham drinking water system." the notice explained that the advisory was "due to an extended planned power outage, [...] the safety of the Village of Meacham drinking water supply cannot be ensured at all times."

We contacted the Village Administration, and they confirmed that the operational and water quality issues were a "SaskPower outage [and] the lines depressurized. We were informed that nothing can be done to prevent PDWAs caused by power outages at this time because the Village "cannot afford a backup generator at this time."

The Village can only perform tests to see if water quality in within prescribed standards.

The Administration explained that the PDWA would be lifted "once two good test results are received back from the lab." The wait won't be that long it "should be lifted today pending confirmation of test results from the lab."
