Irvine and Walsh have good water again


The communities of Walsh and Irvine now have clean safe water again. On Friday, Cypress County reeve Richard Oster cut the ribbon and turned the tap on the new $14.3-million system located in Dunmore. The 48 kilometre water line will replace the outdated water treatment plant in Irvine and a poorly working multi million dollar filtration system in Walsh. Oster said the new water system was simply the right thing to do to help the two communities, who have has trouble with their water for as long as people can remember. The new system involves three new pumping stations, two reservoirs, and will  serving the citizens for the next 18 to 20 years. Oster added that the new system also has the potential of serving a number of water co-operatives along the line.
