Outdoor Watering Ban in Hamlet of Mirror

(Lacombe, Alberta) - Effective immediately Lacombe County is placing a ban on outdoor watering in the Hamlet of Mirror until further notice. 

Conditions in the water treatment plant are restricting the ability of the plant to produce water at full capacity making this ban necessary. Residents are asked to refrain from watering lawns, gardens, or washing cars until further notice. We ask that residents also make efforts to conserve and reduce all water consumption for the short term.

We thank you for your cooperation in this effort.
