At first the ywere leaning toward a membrane filtration system and then they considered a ultraviolet system with backup wells.

 

Councilors were to make a final decision at tonight's city council meeting, but now a decision has been pusehd back to  November 6th.

 

Councilor Victor Chudowsky says he's leaning toward the membrane system.

 

I think the main thing for rate payers is there is no clear winner in terms of cost because of the unkonwn cost of adding the backup wells.  It's not clear one s cheaper than another, and it may even be more expensive.  And we also want to make the most of our dual water supply and that helps in that respect.

 

Chudowsky says the membrane filter system will protect the water supply in the event of a fire in the water shed, the U-V system won't.

 

He is also worried totally changing the water treatment system could potentially affect the timeline for the city's urban gorwth boundary expansion.
