Community asked for feedback on water conservations efforts
The City of Lethbridge is asking residents to pour their thoughts into the Water Conservation Plan Survey.
The survey, running from January 23 – February 7, is collecting feedback on current water conservation efforts, ways to improve conservation and potential incentives the City may consider implementing.
“We know water conservation efforts vary depending on the unique factors and needs of each household or business,” says Manager of Engineering and Environment, Mark Svenson. “This survey will help us better understand the community’s practices and priorities when it comes to overall water conservation.”
Survey questions include current practices and fixtures, such as minimizing shower times and using high efficiency appliances. Other questions gauge the community’s interest in rebates for low flow fixtures and Xeriscaping (water-wise or water-efficient landscaping).
Survey results, along with additional community engagement efforts, will help inform the City’s Water Conservation Plan (WCP). The plan will address both immediate and long-term initiatives to address water scarcity.
“We know water scarcity is top-of-mind for many community members in 2024. We are committed to keeping the public informed throughout this process, including how public input informs the content of the Water Conservation Plan,” says Svenson.
The WCP will be presented at the April 4, 2024 meeting of the Assets and Infrastructure Standing Policy Committee.
