Water & Wastewater - Repairs and 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.
What to expect during a Watermain Break
Watermains carry drinking water from our water treatment plant 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 do their best to 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.

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 may impact sanitary service like toilets and drains in your home.

Like all infrastructure, pipelines eventually need to be replaced. As our water, sewer and storm lines reach the end of their design life, the likelihood of failure increases. We analyze all pipelines based on a variety of factors including but not limited to; failures, condition, risk, roadway quality, location, and customer feedback. The results of this examination optimize the annual renewal programs. The final step is to coordinate renewals in conjunction with roadway overlays to ensure we are not disturbing new asphalt.
