2024 Drought Management

After several dry years without substantial precipitation, Albertans are facing potentially serious drought conditions in 2024. The Province, in collaboration with irrigation districts and the Municipal District of Taber, continues to monitor snowpack, precipitation and river levels in order to understand current drought conditions and ensure that water users have the information they need to be prepared.

All Albertans are encouraged to consider ways to use water wisely. Water conservation is a beneficial habit that supports our community and benefits Albertans downstream from our municipality. There are simple measures everyone can take to conserve water. Currently, the Municipal District of Taber is at Stage 1 of our Water Shortage Management Response Plan, which is voluntary. We urge residents to be conscious of their water consumption and aim to reduce usage by up to 15%. For more information, please refer to the MD of Taber's Water Shortage Management Response Plan for Residential and Commercial Users here.

Below are links to a number of resources meant to inform residents of current conditions, measures that are being taken to conserve valuable water supplies and information that will help you navigate the anticipated drought conditions.
