** Nonpareil Water Treatment Plant (NPWTP) Construction Update **
The main improvements to NPWTP will occur during the spring of 2023. However, Stettler Supply and Construction is scheduled to perform some minor updates starting May 2, 2022, during which time the NPWTP will Not be operational for a period of approximately one month. During the minor improvements Cooper Creek Water Treatment Plant will be the primary source for our community.

The Contractor is planning to install the mechanical piping at the Raw Water Pump Station, as well as the static mixer and raw water flow meter. These are relatively minor improvements that should be completed in less than four weeks. 
No water curtailment is anticipated for these minor improvements
