Fire Hydrant Maintenance

A working fire hydrant is essential for fire protection and required under the Alberta Fire Code. This kind of maintenance work, which is weather dependent, can entail pumping high-pressured water through the pipes and releasing it through fire hydrants.  EPCOR Water Services performs routine maintenance on fire hydrants each spring/summer to ensure they are in good working order for community safety.

EPCOR continually monitors and performs ongoing water quality tests to ensure you have quality on tap.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact EPCOR Water Services at 403-938-1230.

What customers can expect:
  • You may notice water running down your street into catch basins.
  • This process may temporarily result in cloudy water and/or changes in water pressure. Your water will not be turned off and remains safe to use. 
  • As the water is emptied out of the distribution system before it passes your meter, your bill will not be affected. You are only charged for water that passes the water meter on your private property.
