Water restriction guidelines apply to areas in the County serviced with municipally supplied potable water, including Benalto, Spruce View, Springbrook, Junction 42 and Gasoline Alley. Restrictions are in effect yearly from May 1st to September 30th and will support water conservation efforts by setting a guideline for certain water use activities such as watering lawns, gardens, yards, or grounds. Given the pending drought conditions in the Province of Alberta, this policy is currently under review.
EPCOR, the water service provider for Red Deer County, works around the clock to provide you with high quality water. In March 2019, Health Canada announced a new Guideline for drinking water quality that reduces the maximum acceptable concentration for lead in drinking water.
The drinking water in Red Deer County meets the Health Canada Guideline standards for lead levels while it is in the distribution system prior to entering your home or business; however, lead may be found in tap water in homes that have lead pipes or have household plumbing components or fixtures that contain lead.
