Following an emergency water main break in the City of Calgary, the Town of Strathmore has implemented a Stage 4 water restriction.

According to the town, since Calgary has brought in the outdoor restrictions, and Strathmore's water supply comes from Calgary, the town will be doing the same.

It requires all outdoor water use to stop with the exception of uses like, livestock, or businesses such as hospitals and restaurants.

The town is asking residents to avoid:

  • Watering lawns, gardens and shrubs.
  • Washing exterior surfaces unless necessary for health or safety reasons.
  • Washing cars on driveways or streets.
  • Filling hot tubs, pools, or decorative features.
  • Using water for grading, compaction, or dust control.

The town is also asking residents to limit indoors water use if possible:

  • Delay using their dishwasher and washing machine.
  • Limit shower times and keeping baths shallow.
  • Turn off humidifiers and ice machines.
  • Turn off water tap when not in use.


The Town of Strathmore released additional information Thursday afternoon saying the Strathmore Aquatic Centre will be closed until further notice.

According to the town the reason for the decision is to support the Stage 4 water restriction.

The Strathmore Motor Products Sports Centre and the Strathmore Family Centre Arena will maintain regular operating hours, but showers are closed.
