Hudson’s Hope council has awarded a $17,340 contract to Clear Blue Water Systems for upgrades to the Beryl Prairie water station.
Upgrades will include the replacement of water pipes and chemical pump, and the installation of a new pulse flow meter. The stand will be closed from August 17 to 24 while the upgrades are completed. The downtown water stand on Clarke Avenue will remain open 24 hours a day.
The cost for the upgrades is expected to be $17,340 with an approved budget of $34,550 for 2020.
Remaining funds will be used to install keypad access to both of the residential water wells. The district says that is currently on hold due to challenges in billing at the commercial water stand.
Last year the district upgraded the well pump at the station, with Clear Blue Water Systems as the contractor.
Residents with concerns or questions can contact the district at 250-783-9901.
