[ARCHIVED] Water Supply - Pilot Test on Well #1

The well was disconnected from the system when the existing well came online in 2012.  Well #1 has high iron and manganese levels and requires treatment but bringing the well back online was explored as it would help to supplement the water supply in the summer months.   A pilot project using Greensand filtration was recently completed to determine the effectiveness of the filtration system to treat the iron and manganese in the water.  Unfortunately the filtration system did not treat the water enough to lower the iron level to within the Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines. Other options to supplement the water supply will continue to be explored.
