The community of Elko receives raw water from a single well located near the pump house. The well is located in a confined aquifer. Water is fed directly to the distribution system using a 30 horsepower submersible well pump. Because there is no storage reservoir in Elko, the water system relies solely on the continuous operation of the 67 meter well to keep up with demand.
RDEK operators are on site 2 to 3 times per week to ensure proper operation and perform bacteriological sampling monthly as required. The pump house is also outfitted with automatic alarm dialers to alert staff when regular functions are compromised.
The Regional District of East Kootenay will be doing its annual water main flushing in Elko the weeks of May 26 - June 2, 2020. Click here for more information or contact Brian Funke, Engineering Services Manager,
