May 1st was a big day for the Rural 44 Pipeline Utility water distribution system down in the Eston area.

The first subscribers were connected to the distribution line on Monday.

They will continue working hard to complete the rest of the subscriber connections, and Rural 44 Pipeline Utility is looking forward to delivering potable water to the RM of Snipe Lake and surrounding areas. 

They are on a precautionary drinking water advisory until further notice pending sampling results.

West Central Online will have more on the R44WPU as spring rolls on.
