Abbotsford/Mission – Yet another study is out in the grand plan called 200K. This is the mass study and public input for Abbotsford/Mission as the region roars towards the magical 200,000 (200K) population mark.

A water source supply study is within this grand plan. This coming on the heels of a plebiscite decision in 2011 to reject a $290M plan for drawing waster from Stave Lake and let that flow into the mainstream water system.

An idea that is being used in Prince George, is part of this discussion. Simply put, it means that ground water, water-wells are a short term solution and the long term solution could be a Ranney Well. It would be a well dug close to a stable water source – the Fraser River, and would be augmented with water-saturated rock, sand and gravel. In theory, that helps filter and clean the water with one major hitch. The water flow would still have to be treated.

The details can be rather dry read, however if you’re interested, all the information for Abbotford’s Water Master Plans and studies can be found here:
