Town of High River Moving to Water Conservation Level 2 | Saturday, July 1

HIGH RIVER – Starting Saturday, July 1, the Town of High River will be moving to a water conservation level 2.

Water conservation level 2 states that the water conservation bylaw is being enforced, and specific watering days will be implemented.

Level 2 water conservation guidelines are as follows:

  • Residents will only be allowed to water on their location's designated days: 
    • Southwest – Monday & Thursday
    • Southeast – Tuesday & Friday
    • Northwest – Wednesday & Saturday
    • Northeast – Wednesday & Saturday
  • Watering lawns will only be permitted between 5 am – 10 am and 7 pm – 11 pm. 
  • Hand watering of trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens is permitted. 
  • Residents can still fill swimming pools and other recreational facilities.

This change is designed to help residents and businesses be proactive with water use in High River. Water is a valuable, non-renewable resource, and we must do everything possible to protect our reserves. In addition, with the warm and dry summer projected, it is important we protect our water now so we can enjoy it later.

To protect our Town's water, we encourage residents to do what they can to reduce the amount of water being used. 

The water conservation level 2 will be in effect for the summer and is expected to end in October. Our water levels will be reassessed at this time, and the Town will notify residents of any changes. 

Any updates to the water conservation level will be posted on highriver.ca as well as all Town of High River social media channels.
