Not 300% but 31% increase

FTLComm - Tisdale - Wednesday , May 17, 2006


Let's face it math has never been my strong point and in this case I had a error, a big error. Mayor Rollie Zimmer said there has been an increase in water and sewer rates but it was 31% not 300%. In the video (right) he goes on to explain the benefits of the new $4,600,000 water treatment plant including the remarkable improvement expected in the water as the minerals content in the water is expected to decrease so much that water softening will no longer be a necessity in Tisdale.

I had mention in my story yesterday, low water pressure but here also I was mistaken. Water pressure in town is 48 pounds and it may be the small lines in the plumbing in our house that gives us low pressure.


The mayor pointed out that with lower levels of caustic minerals in the water system we will all realise a saving in both softener salt but also in the upkeep of plumbing and appliances like water heaters.

As you can see below, the excavation is completed and the concrete forms are almost completely installed for the footings and base of the new structure.
