Water Supply System

La Scie has a natural water supply located one-half mile from the town. It uses gravity flow rather than pumps. The town used (to date) 18,000 feet of pipe, 16" in diameter. The water supply is inspected by authorities every three months. Private water systems are not inspected. The town does have some problems with freeze-ups in the winter but they have not had any problems with any dry-ups in the summer.

Although the water supply is not treated in La Scie, the Council feels that the water is satisfactory. There is an ample amount of water for both residential and commercial use. The system has up to 90 lbs of pressure.

The water systems were constructed by Newfoundland Engineering (phase I), Babbs Construction (phase II), and the Newfoundland government.
