The Town of Cobalt boasts superior quality drinking water drawn from Lake Sasaginaga which has been protected since 1917 through an Act of the Provincial Legislature “The Cobalt Municipal Water Act”. This lake provides all of the drinking water for the municipality and some residents of Coleman Township.
No development has been allowed on the watershed flowing into the lake, nor is any kind of building or recreation allowed on it or the lakes feeding directly into it. This is one of very few lakes in Canada which has been totally protected from development thus ensuring a safe drinking water supply in perpetuity.
It stands as a testament to the foresight of the mining companies and the municipality.
The Constructed Wetlands provide an innovative and natural method for filtering the wastewater. The infrastructure is relatively new and is an asset for the community looking forward. The side tab will provide those interested with information on this innovative, environmentally useful project.
