Saddle Hills County is pleased to announce a project the County has been working on since 2015 to provide a reliable source of water from the Peace River for the Central Peace Region. 

The project includes the construction of a new raw water supply intake on the Peace River as well as approximately 36 km of new raw water pipeline.

The $40 million project announced in September includes $16 million in funding from the Federal Government and $20 million from the Provincial Government with Saddle Hills County providing the balance.

“We look forward to proceeding with this exciting project and its associated benefits to the long-term sustainability of the Central Peace Region,” said Saddle Hills County Reeve Alvin Hubert.

“The project will provide a reliable source of water for residents, business and industry,” he added.

The County has requested engineering and design proposals and anticipates tendering the project by the fall of 2021.

It is expected that, once the tender is awarded, land is secured, a water diversion license has been obtained as well as the required permits and approvals, the project will have an anticipated two-year construction schedule.
