Project Summary 

We were contacted by the administrators of the new development in Cochrane, Alberta. This unique community has its raw drinking water reservoir and needed aeration to maintain potable water quality in its reservoir. Our team designed and installed a turn-key 19-diffuser Can-Air system to help maintain the reservoir's water quality and drinking water safety standards. The operator of Sampson Water Services Ltd. since reports that water quality testing results have been great since the system installation.
