Survey Results

The Town of Magrath thanks all those who responded to the on-line survey that was recently conducted by the Magrath and District Recreation Committee. Council interest in feedback regarding question #7 (Golf Course) was what prompted this initially. The Recreation Committee then decided that it would like to gather information from citizens regarding the current use and priorities of other Town recreation facilities (Questions #1 – #5). The Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) program then requested that their question (#6) be included to gather information in this area as well.

All of the responses that were gathered are for information only and will only be used by those specific boards for further discussion and consideration in their long-range planning sessions.

We have listed the results to all of the questions below for your information.

LEAD LEVEL IN MAGRATH

There has been a lot of talk in the media lately about lead levels in municipal water systems. The Maximum Acceptable Concentration (MAC) for lead set by Health Canada is 0.005 mg/L. These levels are tested every year by our water plant operators and the latest MAC figure for the Town of Magrath is 0.00030 which is far below this government standard. There are no lead pipes in the Town’s distribution system so far as we are aware. We wanted the community to be aware in case some of you were interested. In this regard, it should be mentioned that there may be some minor quantities of lead associated with lead solder used in residential and commercial copper piping, but these amounts should be negligible. If you do, however, find lead piping in your home or in your private line connecting to the Town’s water system, you should seriously consider getting it replaced. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Town office.
