Water Conservation

Did you know that the average Canadian uses 10,000 litres of water each month? The Town of Bruderheim encourages residents to conserve water to lighten our impact on our watershed. One way you could do this is by mulching your lawn  -  this helps it to grow thicker, with fewer weeds and less watering required. Lawn maintenance consumes a large amount of our water supply every summer. Other ways include installing low flush toilets, turn water off while you're brushing your teeth, fix dripping faucets and check frequently for leaks.

Let's work together to improve water conservation in our community!

Water bills are sent out at the end of each month. Payment is due on or by the 15th of each month (regardless of which day the 15th falls on).  Late payments are assessed at a 5% penalty rate.
