The Town of Bow Island is facing several environment-related charges laid by the provincial government, in regard to failing to monitor that community’s drinking water.

The town is facing five charges for failing to take water samples, which are required under the code of practice for a waterworks system consisting solely of a water distribution system. It’s also charged with failing to report that contravention, providing false or misleading information and failing to report structural or equipment malfunctions.

A majority of those charges fall under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, while one contravenes the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Regulation.

A former Town of Bow Island employee, Ryan Jeffery Sanderson, is facing two additional charges for providing false or misleading information.

Both the Town and Sanderson are expected to appear in court on Tuesday (June 9).

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
