Rushmere Water System

The RDEK will be doing it's annual water system flushing for the Rushmere area between September 4 - October 11, 2019.

The community of Rushmere is supplied with treated water from Lake Windermere through a small membrane filtration treatment plant. Treated water is stored within the plant and pumped to the community using two variable frequency distribution pumps. Rushmere water system is solely dedicated to domestic use and not used for fire protection.

The plant is highly automated and operators have remote monitoring and control capability (SCADA). The plant is attended at a minimum of 3 times per week and can alert staff when problems occur.
