The City of Airdrie could be following in Calgary's footsteps when it comes to water restrictions.

The City is assessing water consumption in its facilities and operations, while also reviewing the water bylaw to ensure alignment with regional standards and the encouragement of heightened water conservation measures.

Airdrie is also collaborating with neighbouring municipalities to actively monitor the situation and formulate comprehensive readiness plans for the city, local businesses, and residents.

Eugene Lund, the Manager of Utility Operations for the City of Airdrie stated when it comes to possible restrictions, they collaborate with the City of Calgary because they have a master services agreement in place for potable water servicing.

"Right now, what we're doing is a bylaw revision to our existing bylaw, where we would be putting in a four-tier water restriction type of system."

Airdronians can expect to hear what the tiers will be when the bylaw revision is brought to the city council in mid-April.

"If we were to reach the level four water restriction, quite a number of activities would be completely prohibited or restricted at that point."

If the four-tier system were to be put in place, it would be similar to the City of Calgary's restriction system as they also have four tiers.

Calgary has recently launched a campaign called "Together we can make every drop count." The mission of the campaign is to conserve water before any water restrictions will have to be set in place later this spring or summer.

According to the City of Calgary, taking shorter showers, washing only full loads in your dishwasher or washing machine and turning off the tap when brushing your teeth or shaving can save the average household hundreds of litres per month and collectively more than three million litres.
