The Town of Taber received a $5,000 grant from Fortis Alberta as part of the Fortis Save Energy Grant program to install LED lighting in our Public Works Shop. Thanks to Fortis' support, the new lighting should reduce the consumption in the Public Works building by 24,000 kWh per year or 20 tonnes of CO2. That's a net savings of $1,225 from the utility bill per year! Thank you to Fortis for your generous support of our project!
The Town of Taber is impacting for future population growth, and proactively protecting the potable water from coagulation and corrosion. Enhanced coagulation can be expected to achieve the following goals:
- Control of residual aluminum with the GCDWQ operation guidance level;
- Stabilization of finished water to avoid corrosion in the treated water distribution system;
- Further reduction of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and finished water turbidity; and
- Improved plant efficiency and extended water filtration run times.
The project is possible through grant funding from the Government of Canada's Investing in Canada: Green Infrastructure Project grant. To learn more, click the image below:
