Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta and Councillor Lisa Dafoe at the grand opening of the Village’s new water treatment upgrade last week. Interior Health ordered the Village to treat their drinking water almost 10 years ago, and the planning for the upgrade began immediately. The physical work was completed in January 2012, but a pipe ruptured during the plant’s commissioning and had to be shut down and repaired. As no fault could be determined among the contractors, Cache Creek spent another $51,500 to have the repairs made. There are still some minor repairs to be made before the new equipment passes its 10-day commissioning process. Cache Creek’s tap water now passes through four green sand filters and is treated with chlorine and ultra violet light. Elementary school children and members of the public were on hand for the official ribbon cutting and tour, and enjoyed cake and ice cream afterwards.
