The “Boil Water Advisory” for the Town of Rivers is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our citizens . At this time we are unable to guarantee that our water is treated to the acceptable standards of the day.
With the extreme cold we have endured this winter we have numerous by-pass lines open to prevent the freezing up of our distribution system. As a result we are now distributing water from our treatment facility faster than we can effectively treat it. Further, the temperature of the incoming water is much colder than we’ve seen in the past and is complicating the treatment process.
This advisory could end up being for the short term, but, it could also quite easily be for an extended period of time and citizens should prepare themselves accordingly.
If you see our Public Works team around give them a cheer. If it wasn’t for their unwavering efforts we would have no water at all.
JOIN OUR “COMMUNITY ON THE MOVE!”
The Town of Rivers and Rural Municipality of Daly have been home to many residents and businesses since the “door to the land of promise” was opened wide in 1907 by Grand Trunk Pacific Railway president Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson. This home town community continues to attract industry, business, residents and visitors for the many advantages of living in a small community — friendly and helpful people, security, peacefulness with all the amenities of a larger centre. The Town of Rivers and the Rural Municipality of Daly are no exceptions to the rule. In this community, people always greet you with a smile and are willing to help out when you need a hand. Rivers has its own police department, hospital, and two schools with a growing economic base, recreation facilities, and many supportive community groups.
The Town of Rivers is seeking representatives to sit on the following Boards.
CDC (Community Development Corporation)
LSRCD (Little Saskatchewan River Conservation District)
Please contact the municipal office for more information or to submit your name as a representative of the Town of Rivers.
