The Town of Rimbey authorized a water restriction as of June 24.

Due to the fact the town has a well “down”, and replacement parts will take up to two weeks to effect, the following restrictions are now in place:

Watering will only take place on odd/even days. If your residence ends in an odd number you can only water on odd dates. If your residence ends in an even number, you can only water on even dates.

We are asking businesses to voluntarily cut down on their water consumption. Car washes and other businesses that use water are asked to assist the Town over the next two weeks.

The Town will monitor our consumption daily. If water usage exceeds 1100 cubes per day with this voluntary restriction we will put full restrictions in with Bylaw penalties.

We encourage our residents and businesses to assist us as we effect repairs on our well and help us sustain our community.

The ban will be for approximately two weeks but residents are cautioned that it may be extended.

Should you require further information please call Rick Schmidt Public Works Director at 403.843.963.2984 or Donna Tona, Interim CAO at 403.918.7208 or 403.843.2113.
