Sturgeon County is taking a proactive approach to conserving their reservoir levels to prepare for water restrictions.
Valley district residents are being asked to help out and follow the odd/even watering schedule during what are typically the hottest days of the year in Alberta.
Water restrictions are put in place during extreme heat or drought conditions to maintain a consistent water table level for residents.
The county has an odd/even watering program in place if they need to restrict water. Even numbered houses or street addresses can use outdoor water use on even numbered calendar days while odd numbered houses or street addresses can water the petunias on odd calendar days.
The schedule helps manage high demand for water, especially during the hot and dry summer months when water consumption jumps significantly.
Residents curious to know more or to see if they're on the program can call Sturgeon County at (780) 939-4321.
