SAGUENAY – The city of Saguenay would have found “the vein” in drinking water. Engineers appointed by the municipal authorities have discovered a water table several kilometers under the land company, Grass Savard.

According to Mayor Jean Tremblay, the discovery would be large enough to feed everyone in Saguenay for decades.

“Experts have also told us that the water quality was excellent. We could use this water without treatment. It would be even better quality than that of Amos, which was declared best in the world a few years ago,” said the mayor of Saguenay.

A process is already underway so that Saguenay is the sole owner of this discovery. The mayor believes that the city would need to acquire a parcel of land to successfully exploit what is in the basement.

Until now, efforts to find drinking water in the territory cost the city nearly a million dollars. “At first we put $20,000, then another $25,000. The engineers told us “if we go further, it is likely”. It’s like when you are looking for a mine. And finally, two years later, we found,” he told Mr. Smith.

The city of Saguenay is still unclear what it intends to make this wealth. The layout of pipes to supply all citizens would cost nearly $100 million. The amount hamper the push from the mayor of Saguenay, but says this discovery ensures the prosperity of the city in the event that water shortages threaten the planet.
