Alberta is preparing for dry conditions this year, and we need to be ready for potential water shortages. There are times when The Town of Canmore may need to call on our community to temporarily reduce non-essential outdoor water use.

What You Need to Know

In alignment with other regional municipalities, we are launching a mandatory outdoor water restrictions program that will come into effect in the event of a water shortage to ensure that there is enough water to meet our essential needs, including water for drinking and fighting fires, as well as to support our neighbours and river health.

There are four stages of restrictions that apply to non-essential outdoor water use based on the severity of the shortage, with some exemptions for health and safety reasons or for core business needs.
