Our water is supplied by the Capital Region Southwest Water Services Commission (CRSWSC) - http://crswsc.ca/ . The CRSWSC transmission main flows from the CRSWSC Boundary Station on the west side of the QEII Highway east into Beaumont’s Main Reservoir on the southeast corner of 50 Avenue and 57 Street. The Commission purchases its water directly from EPCOR Water Services in coordination with the Regional Water Customers Group (RWCG). EPCOR supplies the CRSWSC from two major water treatment plants, E.L. Smith and Rossdale, both located in the City of Edmonton and sourcing water from the North Saskatchewan River. The CRSWSC is one of nine members that form the RWCG. All nine members work closely together to ensure all communications and transactions with EPCOR Water Services are of a united front. The Commission works closely with the RWCG for long-range planning, rate negotiation and coordination of water supply.
The Commission works diligently to ensure clean, safe drinking water is provided to all customers. It closely monitors and controls flow rates, chlorine residuals, pressures and reservoir levels for each of its customers. The Commission endeavours to comply with all regulations and standards set out by Canadian regulatory agencies. It’s the goal of the CRSWSC to set standards and guidelines for each of its customers to model themselves after.
The flow rate is based on what EPCOR can provide to the CRSWSC system while following the agreement with the RWCG.
