The Town of Stoughton is excited to offer a new program to assist in notifying our residents in a more efficient manner. This will help us in letting people know about emergency situations, water disruptions or precautionary drinking water advisories.
In order to implement this new program we require some information from our residents. Should you wish to be a part of this new notification program we ask that you please submit to the Town Office the number you would wish to be contacted at. You can have a maximum of 2 phone numbers per property and your preference of whether you would like to be notified via text message or by an automated phone call. Please call or email the Town Office with your information.
Thank you for taking the time today to learn more about SaskPower’s future power supply planning that includes the potential for a small modular reactor or SMRs. A SMR is a smaller version of a nuclear power plant.
SaskPower started the planning phase for this power option last year. Planning for a nuclear power project needs to start now to keep it as a future power supply option. Starting the site evaluation as a first step is also necessary for the regulatory review process. The final decision on whether to build a SMR will be made in 2029.
We use technical criteria when planning potential locations for a SMR. For example, the site must be near a large water body, existing power lines and connection facilities. Based on these criteria and others, we have narrowed down to potential study areas. We wanted to make you aware that your municipality falls within one of these areas.
SaskPower will now start evaluating each region in more detail to identify options for a potential nuclear power project location. This evaluation process will help us gather more information about what matters to members of the community including municipalities, stakeholders and Rightsholders.
As we evaluate each region in more detail, our goal is to select a site by the end of 2024. This step will be followed by many more opportunities for engagement and further dialogue, as a final decision to build will not be made until 2029.
