Alberta’s Peace River Completes $22 Million Water Plant Upgrade

Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The Albertan town of Peace River, in the heart of the Canadian province’s shale-gas region, completed the upgrading of its water-treatment plant.

The upgrade cost C$22.5 million ($21.8 million) with most of that being funded by the province, the government of Canada said today in a statement. The new system includes additional clarification, sedimentation and filtration functions.

“This is a once-in-a-generation project that will benefit our residents and community for many decades to come,” said Lorne Mann, mayor of the town, in the statement.

Peace River, 486 kilometers (302 miles) northwest of Edmonton, contributed C$4.9 million to the project, using some of its Gas Tax Fund allocation toward the upgrades.
