State of Emergency Canceled

The City of Armstrong has issued a Cancelation Order effective May 16, 2017 for the State of Emergency originally declared on May 6, 2017.

Stage 2 Water Conservation in effect

The City of Armstrong will be moving to mandatory Stage 2 water conservation on Friday May 12.

On May 4th, we switched the water source from Fortune Creek to the wells. Users may notice a change in taste or smell, however the quality water is not affected and the water is safe to consume.

Well water is limited and it is necessary to implement conservation regulations. We anticipate, at this time, that Stage 2 will remain in effect for 3-4 weeks. This will include users within the City of Armstrong and those users in the Round Prairie, Silver Star, Pleasant Valley, Stardell, Lansdowne, and Highland Park water districts.

For full information regarding Stage 2 Water Conservation refer to Bylaw 1806 Water Use and Conservation.
