Englishman River Water Service
This website will provide the residents with general knowledge and background on the Arrowsmith Water Service (AWS) and the Englishman River Water Service (ERWS).
Planning for water supply in this region dates back many years. We secured storage by building the Arrowsmith Dam in 1999 and the next phase for the Englishman River Water Service includes a new river water supply intake, new water treatment plant and distribution system. These new initiatives will mitigate our current risks and ensure a safe, secure drinking water source for the future while at the same time, sustaining a healthy river system.
- In-river water supply intake designed/located to consider the needs of river users and to protect aquatic habitat.
- Water treatment plant with a minimum of 16 million litres per day of membrane filtration capacity to comply with new water regulatory treatment standards.
- Transmission supply mains to homes and businesses.
An environmentally sensitive use of water to improve fish habitat and domestic water supply
