The source water intake for Edgewater is located in Lake Baptiste, approximately two kilometers southeast of town adjacent to the Elk Park Ranches. The water flows from Lake Baptiste, through the treatment plant, to steel reservoirs, and then on to consumers all using the force of gravity.
Edgewater water is disinfected with both UV and chlorine and is stored at the Hewitt Road reservoirs, which provide 1200m3 of treated storage. The RDEK has the capability to fully monitor the entire process through Edgewater’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system which alerts the operators of any potential problems.
