High turbidity and color conditions in the North Saskatchewan River are causing treatment complications at water treatment plants in the Edmonton area. As a result of this, EPCOR is currently unable to meet potable water production demands.

Non-essential water use is to be discontinued until further notice. Non-essential water use is defined as water that is neither essential nor required for the protection of public health, safety, and welfare. As such, outdoor water use is currently prohibited.

Water use at the Nisku Bulk Water Station is limited to essential water use only. Due to the size of the reservoir, the New Sarepta Bulk Water Station will be closed until further notice.

Bulk water haulers can use the Nisku Bulk Water Station when hauling essential use water only. Non-essential use water haulers may receive water at other bulk water stations within the vicinity including stations in Devon, Wetaskiwin, Thorsby and Camrose.

We recognize this may be an inconvenience and ask for patience as water reserves return to normal levels. Leduc County crews will continue to monitor water levels in local reservoirs and updates will be posted on this notice and social media when available.

Learn more about water restrictions or contact Public Works and Engineering at 780-979-6185 for more information.
