On October 14, 2010 the Council of the R.M. of Monet No. 257 passed the following motion:
That, due to Public Health Inspector Jim Webster’s recommendation on September 9, 2010, The Rural Municipality of Monet No. 257 hereby declares the water supply located at the following legal land descriptsion: SW 36-27-13-3 Wiseton; SW 26-25-15-3 Elrose/Bale; NE 11-26-14-3 Hughton to be non potable due to the water not being treated or tested or an unsatisfactory history of water samples. In order to comply with Section 15 of The Public Health Act, 1994, the Rural Municipality of Monet No. 257 agrees to clearly advise users that each water supply is not potable by posting a warning notice in a conspicuous location at the well sites. Further, the notice will indicate that the water is non potable and should not be used for drinking, cooking, food preparation or oral hygiene purposes. In addition, the municipality will check the well sites to ensure that the waring notice is still clearly posted.
On August 31, 2010 the Wartime Water Company declared the Wartime Water Tower NE 8-26-16-3 as non potable.
