The Town of Lamont provides safe and high-quality drinking water to its residents and to commercial customers. Our water is supplied by John S. Batiuk Regional Water Commission.

The Commission pipes water to Lamont from E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant. Water within Lamont is tested weekly for bacteria and chlorine, to ensure safe drinking water for all residents.

Water Quality

To ensure your water is of the highest possible quality, water quality samples are taken and analyzed annually. Water within the community is tested weekly for bacteria and chlorine, in order to maintain safe drinking water for all residents. Each year, a water quality report is published, detailing sampling locations, frequency of testing and results.

Water Metering

Most homes and businesses in Lamont have a remote reader on the interior of their buildings enabling the Public Works staff to read the meters without entering the premises. Meters are read every two months. If for any reason the Town staff cannot make a remote reading they will may make an appointment with you to check your meter.

The average household in Canada uses 125,000 litres of water per person per year, while the average European uses 73,000 litres. For ideas to reduce water consumption in your household, check out http://www.onesimpleact.alberta.ca/.
