Extreme drought conditions, please take note:

Due to the extreme drought conditions that are affecting all Southern Alberta, we are asking our residents to do your part in conserving water. Voluntary action now will prevent the need for mandatory restrictions in the coming days and weeks.

Ways to conserve water can include:

  • Limiting all outdoor uses including watering lawns and washing cars.
  • Do not run the tap unnecessarily. Consider reusing water where possible.
  • Minimize shower time and bath levels.
  • Use the washer and dishwasher only when necessary.
  • Flush toilets only when necessary.
  • Brainstorm ideas to see where other conservation efforts might make sense
