Water ban lifted

February 25, 2017

The water ban in Strathcona County has been lifted effective immediately. The water production operations are returning to normal. Truck fills are now open.                                                                         

“Thank you to residents and businesses that conserved water during the ban,” said Tammy Lockhart, Manager of Water and Wastewater. “We appreciate the quick response of EPCOR’s crews on the repairs.”

The water ban was due to a line break in Edmonton impacting the water feed into Sherwood Park.

Though the ban has been lifted, residents are encouraged to look at their water use habits and find ways to make water conservation part of their daily lives. Visit www.strathcona.ca/savewater for more information.

Residents are also encouraged to sign up for Strathcona County Alerts (SC Alerts) for notification on water bans and restrictions via www.strathcona.ca/scalerts.
