Nordegg townsite is supplied by two water wells which draw off underground aquifers. The water is chlorinated and filtered then pumped to treated water reservoirs with capacities of 1,746,280 liters or 461,318 gallons. The townsite water distribution system is pressurized by gravity from the reservoir located above the townsite. The pressure is kept constant by two pressure reducing valves strategically placed within the distribution system. A potable water station is also located within the townsite, which provides water for cottage owners and businesses in the area.

The water itself is classified as high quality ground water. Daily tests are performed and weekly samples are sent to a lab to ensure quality. The system is run in accordance with the parameters set out by Alberta Environment.


Clearwater County tests water weekly to ensure quality of water. These results are available upon request.
