Water/wastewater incident

At 6 p.m. on October 21, 2023, a contractor completing work on behalf of the Town impacted our wastewater and water pipelines as they were setting up for drilling operations. As a result, both the water and wastewater lines were impacted, causing wastewater to discharge into the Bow River, as well as the water pipeline which has resulted in a significant loss of water to our water storage facilities.

Questions or concerns related to the water / wastewater incident can be directed to Ops Reception at 403.851.2590. 

Update Nov. 10

Cochrane Administration is moving forward with completing the syphon project as intended. The municipal consultant (Urban Systems) and the contractor (Whissell Construction) have re-mobilized the necessary equipment and crews to complete this vital project.
