Les’ Trailer Court will be drilling a new water well for its residents.
On Nov. 22, Les’ Trailer Court was ordered under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and the Water Act to cease unauthorized groundwater withdraws at the mobile home park on Burnt Lake Trail.
Under the order, Brero Holdings Ltd. and owner Robert Bresciani of Les’ Trailer Court had three options — drill a new well, construct a new water treatment system, or reclaim the primary well.
On Dec. 14, Bresciani chose to drill a new well and the deadline to complete the work was extended to Feb. 28.
Until the new well is drilled, water will continue to be supplied by the existing well.
“The drinking water is safe,” said Carrie Sancartier, spokesperson with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, on Wednesday.
“What we’re doing to ensure it continues to be safe is we’ve added additional sampling and monitoring.”
