St. Albert’s water is safe to drink!

The City of St. Albert is aware of the recent media reports surrounding the levels of lead in Canadian drinking water. These reports have led to questions about the safety of drinking water in communities across the country.

The City of St. Albert regularly tests water within our reservoirs and at flushing locations. Residents should know there is no lead concentration measured within the St. Albert public water system.

The distributed water throughout our systems meets or exceeds the Health Canada guidelines and is safe to drink.

The City of St. Albert Utilities & Environment Department is responsible for the City's potable water distribution and operates on a 24-hour response to all water-related complaints or concerns. Our Utilities Branch operates and maintains three separate water reservoirs, over 300 kilometres of water mains, over 2,400 water main valves and almost 2,000 fire hydrants. The City has over 19,300 water service accounts.
