Mistawasis First Nation and it’s approximately 2,200 members are located west of Prince Albert in Saskatchewan. In addition to the residences, the community also has a school and a fire hall.
The community of Mistawasis has high levels of iron, ammonia, TOC, DOC, manganese, turbidity, and TDS in their raw water. Prior to installation of a new water treatment system, Sapphire Water ran a pilot study at Mistawasis for 48 days to ensure a SIBROM would effectively remove those contaminants. The results were used to optimize the SIBROM system, and highlighted that a full scale SIBROM could be fed directly from the wells. Sapphire Water installed a full scale SIBROM, including advanced automation as well as electrical systems.
