Water Conservation

On July 3, Council was presented with the new Water Use and Conservation Policy as well as the Water Conservation, Efficiency, and Productivity Plan. Visit our Water Conservation page to learn more about the plan and policy, what the City does to reduce water consumption, and what you can do to conserve water.

 

Where does our water come from?

The City of Airdrie purchases water from the City of Calgary, who sources it from the Bow and Elbow rivers. The water is treated by the City of Calgary and then travels to Airdrie reservoirs through supply mains. From there, it is pumped to distribution mains where it flows to homes, businesses and hydrants. The City of Airdrie water distribution system consists of approximately 296 kilometres of lines, including three supply lines and three reservoirs.
