EGANVILLE DRINKING WATER SYSTEM:

Municipal Drinking Water Licence & Works Permit:

The Township of Bonnechere Valley has a Municipal Drinking Water Licence and Drinking Water Works Permit for the Eganville Drinking Water System.

Raw Water Supply: The source water for the Eganville Drinking Water System is the Bonnechere River, which originates in Algonquin Park and flows to the Ottawa River.

Treatment Process: The raw water from the Bonnechere River is processed using a conventional type treatment plant with chemical coagulation, flocculation, clarification and filtration. Disinfection is achieved by the introduction of sodium hypochlorite which maintains free chlorine residual in the treated water.

Distribution System: Treated water is pumped into the distribution system which consists of approximately 13 km of underground piping and a water standpipe for pressure equalization and supply when the pumps are cycled off.

Water Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for both the treatment process and distribution system. All current Provincial requirements are being met for process monitoring and water quality.

Quality Management System: The Township of Bonnechere Valley maintains a Quality Management System (QMS) for the Eganville Drinking Water System in conformance with "Ontario's Drinking Water Quality Managment Standard" (DWQMS).

The aerated digested sludge is dewatered utilizing Geotube technology and the resultant biosolids are spread on agricultural land as a soil nutrient.

Sewage Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for the sewage treatment process, effluent discharge and sludge dewatering / utilization. All current Provincial requirements are being met for process monitoring, sewage effluent discharge and biosolids quality.
