The Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant is located approximately thirty kilometres northeast of the City of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, on Highway No. 301, seventeen kilometres north of the intersection with Highway No. 1. The Plant was commissioned in 1955 and provides safe, high quality drinking water to its customers. The Plant has undergone three major capacity and process improvements since its original construction and now has a rated production capacity of 205 Million Litres per Day. The Plant was one of the pioneers in the use of the GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) filtration process for the removal of algae-produced taste and odour.
