Kincardine Council Talks Bruce Power Water Service

Kincardine | by John Divinski  

The idea of providing municipal water service to Bruce Power is in its early stages with an environmental assessment underway

Potable water servicing for Bruce Power is still on the minds of the nuclear facility and the municipality of Kincardine.

At a recent Kincardine council meeting (MAR 4), consultant BM Ross brought councillors up to date on where the issue stands right now.

Kincardine Councillor Laura Haight says the idea of providing municipal water service to Bruce Power is in its early stages with an environmental assessment underway.

Haight says two options have come forward so far.

They could extend the existing municipal pipeline to the plant or they could build a new water treatment plant to service other customers in the area.

If a pipeline is built to service Bruce Power only, that company would pay the freight.

If Kincardine wishes to develop a pipeline for both Bruce Power and to service other customers, then they would have to cover some of the cost, which, in 2019 dollars, could be as high as 10-million.

Haight says any decision is a long way off and could be turned down by both parties in the years ahead.

Right now Bruce Power doesn't have potable water service at the plant and according to Haight, the plant trucks in skids and skids of bottled water everyday for their employees and for visitors.
