2018 Water Quality

The Water Security Agency requires that at least once each year waterworks owners provide notification to consumers of the quality of water produced and supplied as well as information on the performance of the waterworks in submitting samples as required by the Permit to Operate a waterworks.

The following is a summary of the Town of Kyle water quality and sample submission compliance record for the 2017 time period. This report was completed on March 16, 2018.

Readers should refer to Water Security Agency’s Municipal Drinking Water Quality Monitoring Guidelines, June 2015, EPB 502 for more information on minimum sample submission requirements and the meaning of type of sample. Permit requirements for a specific waterworks may require more sampling than outlined in the department’s monitoring guidelines.

If consumers need more information on the nature and significance of specific water tests, for example, “what is the significance of Selenium in a water supply”, more detailed information is available from: http://www.hc­sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/pubs/water-eau/index e.html .

The community of Kyle hails great success in efforts to raise money to replace the aging roof of their community rink and the ‘good ‘ol hockey game’ will play on there for years to come.

February 1, 2018, marks not only the early return of spring but marks one year since fundraising efforts began for a new roof. It was a topshelf effort and not only did organizers reach their fundraising goals, but they beat them.
“Throughout that initial meeting, the donations rolled in quite easily. We promoted the fundraiser progress on our Facebook page and on a progress board at the rink,” said Crystal Imrie, Director of Recreation for the Town of Kyle.

Water Quality

The water quality in Kyle is second to none! Rated as one of the highest quality water supplies in the province is a real plus that the residents of Kyle and area enjoy.

The water treatment in Kyle is gravity fed; there is no need for pumps.

 

Environment and Climate

Kyle and area ecosystem supports a diverse range of flora and fauna. The area is noted as prime agricultural land. Wildlife thrives here due to the abundance of natural prairie grasses and an ample natural water supply. The natural prairie grasses or “prairie wool” is prized by ranchers as a feed source for livestock that is rich in nutrients. Being located right next door to the South Saskatchewan river is another added benefit that this area enjoys. The geographic lay of the land is well suited to agriculture. Soft, rolling hills make for ideal grain and cattle land. Farmers utilize a growing season from May to September; and the area is full of good quality, black soil. As well the land is rich with natural gas. This area enjoys milder winters than most parts of western Canada. Its easy to delight in our long, full summers; whether you’re vacationing or farming.
