Water restriction lifted

August 29, 2016

The water restriction in Strathcona County has been lifted effective immediately. Water production operations have returned to normal.

Water restriction in place

August 25, 2016

Effective immediately, Strathcona County is asking residents to reduce water consumption.

Persistent rainfall throughout the North Saskatchewan River watershed has increased debris in the water, and substantially increased turbidity levels. As a result, the rate of water production has slowed, and demand for potable water is in excess of current production. EPCOR has therefore called on Edmonton and Capital Region residents to reduce non-essential water use.
