WATER

The water system consists of three wells which have a capacity of 1382 m3/day which is sufficient to provide enough water for 4600 persons assuming an average demand of 300 I/person/day. Two new pumps have recently been installed.

The Water Treatment Plant can process 485 L/min or 233m3/day assuming a 9 hour day (8 hours for production and 1 hour for backwashing). This is enough water for 776 people. If the plant was operated for 24 hours, it would be able to treat 669m3/day which provides enough water for 2231 people.

Guidelines for water storage are two average day demand plus one hour of fire flow at 67 L/s. This calculates to 738 m3 storage requirement at full growth. The reservoir has a current capacity of 734 m3 which is sufficient. Eliminating the fire flow requirement allows the current reservoir to be sufficient for 1223 persons.

The water distribution pumps are capable of providing 14.7 L/s which is more than the peak hour requirement of 11.6 L/s. The Town installed 6 inch PVC Brute pipe to replace cast iron mains in the 1980’s.

In summary and unlike many other Saskatchewan communities, Broadview’s water system is in good shape and has sufficient capacity for the projected growth.
