WaterThe Town of Woodstock has two wells approximately 150 ft deep located on an island in the middle of the St. John River. You may notice that throughout the Town a number of water storage tanks and booster stations can be found. These parts of infrastructure assist in transporting water throughout the system and to your homes and places of work.
We have the ability to store approximately 850,000 gal. of water if needed, the high amount of storage serves the public in two ways. The first with a good quality of water to drink and be used for day to day operations around the house. The second will be for fire protection.
The water we use is tested frequently to ensure it is safe to drink. A joint testing schedule with the New Brunswick Department of Environment/ Department of Health is followed to ensure that all parameters are tested for our protection.
Woodstock has a SCADA System which instructs the pumps when to start and stop. This SCADA System ensures that there will be enough water throughout our distribution system. SCADA acts like a full time employee who works 24 hours a day to ensure water is there when we need it.
We take pride in our quality of water and workmanship around water infrastructure. The Town of Woodstock realizes it is a special gift. Woodstock has the claim to having North America's First Biological Manganese Removal Plant. High levels of manganese are almost untraceable when water flows through the plant making it very efficient.

In the month of August, the Public Works crew will go door to door to read your meter.
