Yellow Quill Robert Neapetung Memorial Water Treatment Plant
On Treaty Day at Yellow Quill, which was held on June 10, 2011, there was a grand opening of the water treatment plant on-reserve. The new state of the art facility was named after the late Robert Neapetung for his many years of operating the former water treatment plants which existed within Yellow Quill. The current Robert Neapetung Memorial Water Treatment Plant replaces the previous plant that was destroyed in a fire in January 2010. The plant’s capacity more than meets the needs of Yellow Quill’s residential community.
Prior to 2004, Yellow Quill First Nation was under a boil water advisory for over 9 years due to the poor water source and inefficient treatment equipment. The Safe Drinking Water Foundation (SDWF) was contacted by concerned citizens of Yellow Quill First Nation and the SDWF principle scientist, Dr. Hans Peterson, intervened and undertook a nearly two yearlong research endeavor where he lived on the reserve and tested, developed, and piloted various treatment processes.
Thus marked the inception of the Integrated Biological Reverse Osmosis Membrane (IBROM) system and the removal of the nearly decade long boil water advisory. To learn more about the IBROM system please visit the SDWF website at www.sdwf.org. The current Robert Neapetung Memorial Water Treatment Plant uses the same technology to treat the existing ground water to produce high quality drinking water.
