The installation of an improved municipal water system has recently been completed in Behchokö.
The improved water treatment plant involved the installation of a wood pellet boiler heating system. Not only will the new heating system have long-term health benefits for the residents by providing a cleaner energy source for the area, it will also reduce Behchokö’s operating and maintenance costs.
“The upgrade to our water treatment plant has demonstrated the community’s commitment to alternative environmentally clean energy sources,” says Clifford Daniels, Chief of the Community Government of Behchokö. “The Chief and Council would like to express their appreciation towards these federal investments in community infrastructure in Behchokö.”
