Water restrictions in place for Cowley and Lundbreck

Christian Davis - Effective immediately, the MD of Pincher Creek No. 9 and the Village of Cowley is under a water conservation order.  According to a notice issued today July 8, 2016 by MD Public Works Superintendent Stu Weber "The MD has been notified by Alberta Environment that our water intake in the Castle River is suspended immediately, due to low water flow rates.  This means the MD will not be transferring water to the Lundbreck or Cowley water storage facilities until alternate plans can be arranged."  Residents and businesses are asked to cooperate with conserving water in any way possible, including no watering of lawns.  "The MD is exploring numerous options to restore water production, however, all of these options will take a number of days to implement."

No water restriction is currently in place for the Town of Pincher Creek, however, Town residents are being encouraged by Town administration to be water-wise as much as possible.
