Water Conservation

The City of Lethbridge is addressing water scarcity concerns in southern Alberta. Multiple years of below normal precipitation have resulted in drought conditions. Recent snowfall is encouraging, but reservoir levels remain well below normal. It is important we conserve the limited resources we do have.

This page provides links to these efforts, including:

  • The City of Lethbridge Water Conservation Plan and Strategy, including the updated Water Rationing Action Plan.
  • Water Wednesday, a weekly series providing information and tips on water conservation.
  • The latest local updates on water conservation efforts and water rationing.
  • Information on reservoir levels, mountain snowpack and runoff forecasts.

Current Stage Under the Water Rationing Action Plan

The community is asked to continue voluntary conservation measures. This also includes Lethbridge County, Coaldale, Coalhurst and Picture Butte.

Ways to conserve water can include:

  • Limiting all outdoor uses, including watering lawns and washing cars.
  • Reusing water where possible.
  • Minimizing shower times and bath levels.
  • Running full loads of laundry and dishes.
