Water Restrictions

Current Water Restriction: No Restriction

The Town of Devon receives and processes its water through the Devon Water Treatment Plant.

In May, 2024, Council adopted a Water Conservation Bylaw outlining restriction that may be placed on water use in the community. These restrictions can be implemented for several reasons, including:

  • increased water demand
  • extended periods of warm weather
  • mechanical issues at the Water Treatment Plant
  • unexpected water shortages

In such cases, the Town of Devon has an Emergency Water Conservation Strategy that includes three levels of water restrictions (Level I, II and III).

Water Restriction Level I  

Water Restriction Level I asks residents to limit their water usage and reduces all non-essential water use by the Town including hydrant & water main flushing, washing of equipment, watering of trees & plants, firefighter training and any other non-essential use.

Water Restriction Level II 

Water Restriction Level II implements a non-essential water ban on the Town. This also includes closing the Town’s Bulk Water Station to commercial use and Centennial Spray Park until reservoirs levels are restored.

Water Restriction Level III 

Water Restriction Level III includes all restrictions in level II plus the closure of privately owned Bulk Water Station(s), every effort made to limit water usage within the Town and an increased focus by the Town’s Peace Officers on water conservation offenses.

In the event that restrictions are needed, notifications will be made via signs at major intersections, the Town’s social media platforms, and on the town website at devon.ca.
