Pinesdale's new water filter system

MONTANA – On Wednesday June 14, the town of Pinesdale will host an all-day open house in celebration of their new water treatment facility, funded in-part by grants through the Montana Department of Commerce.

“This new facility will ensure that the people who live in Pinesdale will have access to safe, clean drinking water for generations to come”, Commerce Director Pam Haxby-Cote said, “The result of this collaborative project highlights the important work that gets done when we work together.”

Earlier this spring, Pinesdale completed the construction of their new water treatment facility, replacing a 50-year-old system that didn’t reliably produce safe drinking water. The nearly 920 residents of Pinesdale will now have a clean and reliable domestic water supply. The new facility will provide a high level of filtration for the town’s water supply and will keep out contaminants.

The new water treatment facility was funded with $1.2 million from the Montana Department of Commerce Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Treasure State Endowment Program (TSEP) grants. The new facility also received funding from the Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Rural Development for a total project cost of $2,447,010.
