2024 Water Start-up

Apr 26, 2024

Attention Irrigators,

Water season is rapidly approaching!

Our teams are currently working hard preparing for the upcoming irrigation season.

Please be advised that we are beginning to flush and charge our system, and we expect water will be available across the entire district, by the week of May 6th-10th, weather permitting.

If you would like to place a water order, please text your water coordinator or use the WaterMaster Web App with your order as soon as possible to ensure a timely delivery of service.

Please do not phone your water coordinator during this busy time, as they are working hard to ensure your system is prepped for the upcoming irrigation season.

Based on the most recent Irrigation Water Supply Forecast supplied by Alberta Agriculture & Irrigation, the supply volume is consistent with the previous forecast.   Water allocation remains at 8” at the farm gate for the 2024 irrigation season.
