Water & Wastewater Incident: Update #16

Red box 'attention please'

(Cochrane, AB) – Cochrane is pleased to provide the following comprehensive update on the ongoing situation. Water conservation efforts have yielded positive results. This is a significant step in the right direction.

As of 6 a.m., water hauling has been discontinued as positive levels are being observed in Cochrane’s reservoirs. 

Significant progress has been made, and the Town of Cochrane encourages residents and businesses to continue conserving water. In addition to the essential use of water to maintain personal health and hygiene, residents can take quick showers, complete an emergency load of laundry, or wash dishes as a result of the improving water reservoir levels.

Late last night, water was restored to local hotels and the GM dealership, ensuring uninterrupted operations for these local businesses.

Partial road closures on West Rock Road and West Side Drive will remain in effect throughout the day. In addition, the closure on Riverview Drive will continue to be in place. Residents are encouraged to plan their routes accordingly. The partial road closure of Gleneagles Drive East from HWY 1A has been lifted as of this morning. 

The Town of Cochrane expresses its sincere gratitude for the outpouring of support from local businesses, volunteers, and organizations. YMCA Calgary has provided free access to their facilities for Cochrane residents and SLSC members.

The Town appreciates the unity and resilience of the community during this challenging time and will continue to provide regular updates as the situation evolves. For more information and further updates, residents can visit Cochrane.ca.
