Town of White City Recycles Water

As part of the town’s continuing efforts to conserve water, lawn irrigation at Serbu Park and the splash park uses recycled water.  Serbu Park uses backwashing water from the SaskWater treatment plant. The splash park lawn is irrigated using water captured from the play structure. Recycling decreases the demand for treated water and using it to water grass avoids sending it into the sewer system.

 Annual Water Works Information

2014 Utility Financial Overview

 Connection to the Municipal water system is mandatory for every residence in town.

There can be no cross-connection between the Municipal supply and any water you may be using from your well for yard irrigation.

There is a $400.00 water meter charge on new constructions per property on each installed water meter which is NOT refundable should you move from the residence.  There is a $75.00 connection fee for any resident purchasing an existing home.

To arrange for installation of your new water meter or your move from your residence, please call the Municipal office at 781-2355.

Wells are permitted. Wells can only be used for yard irrigation.  All wells require permits from the Municipal office located at 14 Ramm Avenue East.

 

Water Leak Cost

Just a note of information on the cost of water leaks in your home.  If you have a 1/32” stream of water from your faucet, 25 gallons of water is wasted in a 24 hour period and 750 gallons would be wasted in one month.  A 1/8” stream of water wastes 400 gallons in 24 hours and 12,000 gallons in one month.

Another source of leaks is the toilet.

Inspect these sources of wasted water often and have them repaired at once.  Your water meter is registering the leakage.
