The town of Hudson Bay, with a population of 1,500 people, is located in the Red Deer Valley, between the Porcupine and Pasquia Hills in northeast Saskatchewan, Canada. It is widely known for its forestry, agriculture and wildlife.
Like many rural communities in the province, Hudson Bay is faced with treating a challenging potable water source. Its raw water is high in dissolved organic carbon (DOC), which can vary by 4 mg/L throughout the year. DOC is a known precursor to the formation of halogenated organic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) such as trihalomethanes.
