  • Fleet washing
  • Bulk Water Station
  • Third-party water sales are restricted to human consumption only
  • All fire training involving use of municipal water and municipal hydrants
  • Spray park operations
  • Filling Lakeland pool
  • Park sprinkler systems
  • Water truck
  • Voluntary water reduction by residents, i.e. watering lawns, filling pools, hot tubs or recreation trailers, washing cars/houses/driveways.

As a member of the Alberta Central East Water Corporation, the Town of Vermilion is obligated to comply with the requirements to ensure the proper functioning of the regional transmission line.

“We have been advised the forecasted water levels will be below 50 per cent in the next five days,” the Town of Vermilion said. “ACE Water Corporation anticipates further water restrictions. A notice will be issued if we have to move to a Level C water restriction which will be for consumption, personal hygiene, and household cleanliness only. Thank you for support and patience.”
