Non-potable water stations at the Airdrie Recycling Depot from the City of Airdrie to help with gardening needs during water restrictions on June 22.

To help residents during level four water restrictions and a balmy weekend, the City of Airdrie has established non-potable water tanks for watering flowers, lawns, and gardens at the Airdrie Recycling Depot on 21 East Lake Hill.

According to a City of Airdrie Facebook post, residents must bring their own bucket up to a maximum of five gallons to the Airdrie Recycling Depot where they can fill up straight from a hose connected to the tanks. 

The water is strictly for residential use only, however, things are looking up for the Airdrie water crisis. 

“Our community’s efforts to reduce water usage are paying off. Yesterday, June 20, we saw a 26 per cent drop in water usage compared to normal levels before the outdoor water restrictions. We appreciate your continued efforts to conserve water,” said the City of Airdrie Facebook post. 

Additionally, the City will be conducting street sweeping and dust suppression this weekend with imported non-potable water supply.
