Reeve Hubert said, "This Water Treatment Plant and Truckfill represents another major investment in the future of Saddle Hills County.  With this new plant, we are extending our Rural Potable Water Initiative to one more section of the County."

The $12 million project represents another step in the County's plan to provide potable water to resident, businesses and industry through an integrated system with focus on efficiency, growth and accessibility. Construction began in the summer of 2019 and the plant is expected to be commissioned and providing water in the coming weeks.
