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.

Avenue of Trees 2014

Help raise funds and spirits by supporting the 2014 Avenue of Trees, featuring 10 beautifully decorated trees donated by local municipalities and program sponsors.  On display at the Okotoks Recreation Centre, the Turner Valley tree – decorated to symbolize the Town’s “Back to Nature” theme- was created by our own very talented Mayor, Kelly Tuck.  It was selected as the “Most Outstanding” entry by local celebrities and the public.  All entries will be sold by silent auction to raise funds for the Oilfields General Hospital and programs offered in the Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley, Longview, Millarville, and Priddis areas.

Water System Restoration

Update: October 2014

A notice from the Quad Regional Water Partnership (QRWP) has been mailed to residents of the local area to update the community on the Water System Recovery.  Please read the current bulletin: QRWP Update Oct 2014  for further information.

NOTICE

In August, our raw water reservoir was at 74% capacity. We knew we needed to get to 100% capacity to be able to sustain the Towns of Turner Valley and Black Diamond with water over the winter. Thanks to conscientious community members, we did it!  The raw water reservoir has been 100% full since September 5, 2014.

We can now reduce the water restrictions that have been placed on residents and businesses since the 2013 flood. Effective November 2, 2014, the water restrictions will be reduced from Level II (set in August) to Level I.

 What does a Level I water restriction mean?

Level I sets out a VOLUNTARY conservation water schedule based on odd and even address numbers – similar to Level II water restrictions. Residents and businesses are encouraged – but not mandated – to use water for outdoor activities on their specified water day only (based on the last number of their address – odd or even.)

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

Please continue to conserve water by restricting outdoor water uses such as watering lawns; washing vehicles, sidewalks, pads, exteriors of buildings; and filling the hot tub/Jacuzzis.
