Limit Water Usage - Ended!
The City of Lethbridge has restored water treatment back to normal levels. Residents can now resume normal water usage. Thank you to all residents for your efforts to reduce water consumption over the past few days! Limiting water use means we were able to avoid having to issue a boil-water order.
Due to the recent warm weather, residents are being asked to limit water usage while the City of Lethbridge makes adjustments to water treatment in order to offset high turbidity in the Oldman River. Limiting water usage now will help avoid a boil water order in the near future.
More information, including all recent updates, are available from the City of Lethbridge.
