Our goal is to fully recover from the 2013 flood and build increased resiliency, on all fronts, for the next flood. Learn more about Water Services' flood projects.

Counting on our Water

We manage the quality and delivery of Calgary's water supply - from the river, to our taps and back to the river
We work 24/7/365 to protect public health by delivering clean, reliable drinking water and by treating Calgary's wastewater, before it returns to the river.

We also manage the city's stormwater drainage, we respond to floods and we contribute to the conservation of our precious water resource. We are all Counting on our Water. Watch the video to find out how Calgary's water system delivers a lot for a little. Or, read the 2013 Water Report to learn more about our 12,000 km infrastructure network, and the experts behind it who are dedicated to protecting our precious natural resource.

Water Meter
Switch From A Flat Rate To A Water Meter
On a flat water rate? It's time to make the switch! The City has launched a water meter program to convert remaining flat rate residential accounts to meters. More than four in five Calgary residences already have water meters. Under the Water Utility Bylaw, all homes in Calgary will have water meters by the end of 2014.

Water-wise workshops, programs and events
We will be at locations throughout the city to help educate Calgarians about water conservation and provide water wise tips and tools.
