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.

Following the floods of June 2013, the Government of Alberta set up the Southern Alberta Flood Recovery Task Force. The City of Calgary also created an Expert Management Panel to steer Calgary's River Flood Mitigation Program and to reduce damage due to future flooding. Recommendations from both groups indicate the potential for three Elbow River mitigation options. View the options under consideration.
