Lend a Hand, Reduce Demand
June 3 - 7, 2017

The City of Lloydminster will require cooperation from residents and businesses to conserve and restrict water during a system maintenance project occurring Saturday, June 3 until Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

The City of Lloydminster will not have access to water from the North Saskatchewan River while important maintenance work is completed. To ensure the community’s most vital water needs are sustained through the shutdown, the City of Lloydminster is calling on all residents and businesses to minimize demand on the municipal water system.

We need residents and businesses to respect that we have a limited amount of water during the maintenance shutdown and that all non-essential water usage be must suspended until the work is completed,” said Alan Cayford, Director, Operations. “After reviewing usage data from previous years, we are confident our reserves can accommodate Lloydminster’s basic water needs until river access is restored.

Non-essential water usage includes:

  • Watering trees, shrubs or lawns including timed water irrigation
  • Cleaning and filling hot tubs, pools and ponds
  • Washing vehicles, driveways, sidewalks, houses or pathways

As per Bylaw 206-2016 reported water waste may result in fines and your water being temporarily shut off.

To report potential water waste please email.
