Our Water Supply
The Town of Stony Plain provides safe and high-quality drinking water to its residents and to commercial customers. Your water is supplied by the Capital Region Parkland Water Services Commission, which receives water for distribution from EPCOR. The Commission pipes water to Stony Plain from EPCOR's Water Treatment Plant in Edmonton. The water treatment plant incorporates state-of-the-art membrane filtration. The water is transported to your taps through a system of pipes, pump stations and water tanks. Water within Stony Plain is tested weekly for bacteria and chlorine, to ensure safe drinking water for all residents.
Providing clean drinking water is of paramount importance for the health of our residents. Your drinking water is treated in accordance with the federal Public Health Act and the Alberta Water Act (Provincial Drinking Water Protection Regulation). The Town also follows Health Canada’s Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality.
To ensure your water is of the highest possible quality, water quality samples are taken and analyzed annually. Water within the community is tested weekly for bacteria and chorine, in order to maintain safe drinking water for all residents. Each year, a water quality report is published, detailing sampling locations, frequency of testing and results.
In order to maintain your water quality once it reaches your home, you should make a habit of doing the following:
- run your taps for 60 seconds before drinking out of it when it has not been turned on for more than four hours;
- regularly remove aerators (small screens found in the faucet head) and clean them with a sanitizing solution (such as bleach);
- do not drink hot water from the tap;
- ensure you have a back-flow prevention device on your irrigation system;
- monitor your water service line for leaks between the curb and your house. If there are spots on your lawn that are constantly wet or green through the summer months, it could be an indication of a leak in your service, which can be a source of contaminants; and
- if using a home filtration system, change the water filters regularly and clean the container often.*
*The Town of Stony Plain does not recommend the use of filtration devices in your home, as they are seldom maintained to the manufacturer’s recommendations and can occasionally be the source of bacterial build-up.
Each home, and most businesses, have a remote reader on the exterior of their buildings, so there is no need for Town staff to enter the premises to read the meter. The meters are read every other month, and bills mailed are mailed monthly.
If you notice that your average consumption is larger than normal, please perform the following on your premise:
- check all toilets, urinals, faucets and outside hose-bibs for continuous water use. A toilet that does not seal uses approximately nine litres of water per minute, resulting in a cost of roughly $1,000 every three months;
- turn off all water fixtures, and listen for running water;
- commercial grade refrigeration and air conditioning units use water as part of their cooling system. Occasional servicing and maintenance may turn up leaks in the system; and
- check surrounding property for puddles or heaves in the asphalt or lawn.
If you do not find a leak after conducting the above investigation, but still believe you may have a leak, please contact Public Works to receive further instruction or assistance in determining whether or not you have a leak. Although Town staff may be able to determine if you have a leak, finding the location can be difficult, and it is not a service that the Town provides.
