Welcome

Turner Valley is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, 35 minutes southwest of the city of Calgary on the edge of Kananaskis Country.  Our community embodies the essence of small town living – offering economic opportunity, community connections, and a beautiful setting for outdoor recreation.  Many people are attracted to the area for its magnificent scenery and fresh mountain air; there is so much here for you to discover and enjoy.

NOTICE

The Towns of Turner Valley and Black Diamond are reducing the current water restriction from Level III to Level II effective 12:00 a.m. August 8, 2014. 

The fire ban in the Towns of Turner Valley and Black Diamond has now been lifted.  The fire ban in the M.D. of Foothills is still in place until further notice.

New water sources recently brought on-line are proving to be safe and sustainable.  That means residents will be able to use water for outdoor activities – but still to a limited extent.

We continue to ask residents to use water cautiously to allow the raw reservoir to continue to fill (and to avoid returning to Level III restrictions).  The water reservoir is currently only 67% full.  The goal is to be at 100% capacity prior to the onset of winter.

 

What does a Level II water restriction mean?

All outdoor water use including watering lawns, washing vehicles, sidewalks, pads, exteriors of building, filling of hot tubs/jacuzzis, recreational use of sprinklers and like water toys, is restricted to the following schedule:

ODD AND EVEN WATERING DAYS:  Using the last number of your address (odd or even) determines which days you are permitted outdoor water use:

ODD:    numbered addresses may use water for these purposes Thursdays and Sundays

EVEN:  numbered addresses may use water for these purposes Wednesday and Saturdays

WATERING:  may occur only on such permitted days during the following hours:  6:00 am – 9:00 am; and  7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Flowerbeds and vegetable gardens may be watered by hand, during the prescribed times, using a watering can or hose with a nozzle trigger shut off to restrict water flow.

Requests for site and condition specific irrigation scheduling for commercial or industrial operations using a metered irrigation system may be approved in writing by the CAO.

Requests for water conservation exemption permit for newly seeded lawns or freshly planted sod may be applied for at the Municipal Office.

Note:  Exception permits for new sod/grass watering and commercial site specific operations, will be available at each Town Office on August 8, 2014 during regular business hours.

Complete Fire Ban Remains in Effect

Fire Ban, Level III

FIRE BAN - The Fire Ban within the Town of Turner Valley remains in effect due to the water restrictions that are also still in place.  Typical residential fire flows can reach upwards of 6800 liters per minute or in excess of 700 000 liters over the event. This would significantly impact our current limited water situation. Until the Town is in a positive water flow situation, the Fire Ban will remain in effect.
