LNID Reduction in Flow – September 30, 2017

Please be advised that on September 30, 2017, Alberta Environment & Parks will be significantly reducing the amount of water diverted from the Oldman River for the LNID, to facilitate an assessment of the LNID diversion structure for maintenance and repair purposes. All water users are encouraged to fill their dugouts and to commence any planned fall irrigation, as soon as possible, as the water supply will be very limited between September 30, 2017 and water shutdown during the first week in October 2017.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any questions or require further clarifications please contact Gary Burke, Classifications/Network Technician at our office (403 327-3302).


To provide the best, most efficient water delivery system at the lowest possible cost to the water users, while ensuring good stewardship for the environment and our natural resources.
