Water Allocation System

Since 2011, availability of capacity to service new development lands in Okotoks has been managed through an allocation system. The Water Allocation System (Policy CMD-P-3.10, adopted in May 2021),  provides details on the requirements and direction of the allocation process. The policy guides development approvals while simplifying the process for planning and developers.
