Strathmore's Bulk Water Station and Lions Splash Park are open to the public as the town eases water restrictions.

On Saturday afternoon the town announced on its Facebook page that stage three outdoor water restrictions are now in place. Residents can now water gardens, trees, shrubs, and grass. Water can also be used for construction purposes.

However, residents are still prohibited from using sprinklers, horses with spray nozzles, or filling outdoor pools. Washing cars, windows, sidewalks, and driveways is also still prohibited.

These restrictions were eased just before Environment Canada issued a heat warning for the area, which is expected to peak in the middle of the week.

The town implemented a Stage 4 water restriction following an emergency water main break in the City of Calgary in early June.

It was also announced that the kiddie pool will be reopening on Monday following testing from Alberta Health Services. According to the town, this means all amenities in the Aquatic Centre are now accessible.
