Water Conservation

With extended dry, hot weather and several southern Alberta water basins experiencing shortages, the City of Lethbridge is asking everyone to do their part in conserving water. Voluntary action now will help prevent the need for mandatory restrictions in the coming days and weeks.

The City of Lethbridge provides water to Coaldale, Coalhurst, Picture Butte, Monarch, Diamond City, Shaughnessy, Iron Springs, Turin and other regional partners. All communities are requested to help conserve water.

See public service announcement from the City of Lethbridge here.

See some ideas from the City of Lethbridge on how you can help conserve water:

Ways to conserve water can include:

While the water conservation effort is in effect, the City of Lethbridge is rationing water usage in the following ways:

  • Suspending washing of City vehicles unless necessary for safety reasons
  • Reducing watering in feature parks, sportsfields and schools by 25 per cent
  • Reducing watering in other parks and boulevards by 50 per cent
  • Temporarily closing Gyro Spray Park at Nicholas Sheran and Rotary Fountain in Galt Gardens at the end of the day Thursday, August 17. Legacy Park Spray Park will remain open at this time.
  • Dry street sweeping where possible
The Alberta government continues to monitor the situation watching precipitation levels, reservoirs and lake levels, stream flow rates in rivers and water demand. They continue to work closely with municipal governments to help manage and conserve water where possible. More information is available here: Drought |

Water conservation efforts are in place until further notice and residents are thanked in advance for their cooperation.
