RO UPDATE

With the commissioning of the Reverse Osmosis system growing closer, Town Council would like to note a couple of important points for residents to keep in mind once the system is running.
The water that comes out of your tap will fully meet provincial health standards. The water will be softer, which means you will no longer need a water softener or to buy softener salt.
However, it has been shown in other towns with RO that for the first year or so there may be an increase in the number of water leaks in existing copper piping either in the distribution system or in homes. The RO water is not eating your pipes, but is clearing out old existing sediment and revealing leaks. This will not necessarily be the case here but residents should be aware that it is a possibility.
As a result, town council is recommending you revisit your home insurance coverage just in case, as well as monitor your in-home pipes regularly once the RO system is up and operating. As well if you notice water flowing, sitting or heavily saturated ground in an area that it should not be around town, please notify the Town Office as it could indicate a break.

Churchbridge Fire Rescue Challenge Coin

Churchbridge Fire Rescue has their own challenge coin! A challenge coin is a small medallion that bears an organization's insignia or emblem and is typically carried by the organization's members. The history of the coin has several stories, most of which have military origins. Historically, they were given to prove membership to an organization, to commemorate a special achievement, exchanged in recognition of a visit and also to enhance morale. In moder day, the rules of the challenge coin have become more relaxed. The coin has become a collectors item, sought after by fellow service memebers and emergency services personnel. The Churchbridge Fire Rescue is selling these challenge coins as a fundraiser for their department. The coins can be purchased for $20 from any member of Churchbridge Fire Rescue and at the Town Office. (Shipping at buyers expense).

"Rural Crime Watch is a community driven, community led, police supported Crime Prevention, Crime Reduction collaborative program.Volunteers would have a vested interest in their community; they share the common goal of safe homes and a safe community."

The Town of Churchbridge and surrounding communities are seeking residents who are interested in joining a Rural Crime Watch Group. The resident would have to get a criminal record check, but it would be free of charge. A membership fee may be determined at a later date, depending on funds received for the program.

The time commitment is minimal, but the benefit is huge for communities! The RCMP would inform the Rural Crime Watch group when there is criminal activity in the area.

To be a part of the Rural Crime Watch group, a resident must have a smart phone to access the apps required for the program. If you are interested please contact the Town Office at (306) 896-2240 or email churchbridge@sasktel.net to sign up. Click here for more information.
