Repairs & Improvements

​We continually perform repairs and upgrades to Lethbridge's water, sewer and stormwater systems. Planned and unplanned services are required and sometimes this results in a temporary disruption of water service.

Planned services include annual maintenance and planned infrastructure upgrade projects. Unplanned service requests include emergency watermain breaks and sewer line repairs or replacement. 

Watermain repair/upgrade

Watermains carry drinking water from our water treatment plants to homes, businesses and institutions across the city. These pipes can sometimes leak or break and require repair.

This can mean temporary disruption of water service for residents or businesses. When that happens, we work to restore water service as quickly as possible.

City crews will notify residents in the area of an interruption in water supply service. This is usually done in person by going door-to-door in the affected area.
If residents are not home a notification tag is left on the door.

Sanitary sewer line repair/replacement

Like watermains, our sanitary sewer pipes sometimes break and require repair. These types of repairs do not impact your drinking water like in a watermain break.

However, they do impact sanitary service like toilets and drains in your home.
