The Utilities Department is responsible for the water and wastewater infrastructure in Battleford. The amount of water treated by the water treatment plant ranges from almost 90,000m3
in the summer quarter to less than 60,000m3
in the winter quarter. Water is the Town's business and to assure you that it is safe, it is tested approximately 100 times per month. The wastewater lagoon is also tested weekly to ensure that the effluent is safe.
