The town is saluting residents and businesses for how their water conservation efforts have yielded positive results.

"As of 6 a.m., water hauling has been discontinued as positive levels are being observed in Cochrane’s reservoirs," states this morning's update.

But we're not out of the woods yet, and the community must keep up the good work.

"Significant progress has been made, and the Town of Cochrane encourages residents and businesses to continue conserving water. In addition to the essential use of water to maintain personal health and hygiene, residents can take quick showers, complete an emergency load of laundry, or wash dishes as a result of the improving water reservoir levels.

It has also allowed for the restoration of water to local hotels and the GM dealership on Westside Dr.

Here's a breakdown of the other major points: 

  • Partial road closures on West Rock Road and West Side Drive will remain in effect throughout the day.
  • The closure of Riverview Drive will continue to be in place. Residents are encouraged to plan their routes accordingly.
  • The partial road closure of Gleneagles Drive East from Hwy 1A has been lifted as of this morning.

The Town of Cochrane expresses its sincere gratitude for the outpouring of support from local businesses, volunteers, and organizations. It expressed appreciation to YMCA Calgary for providing free access to its facilities for Cochrane residents and SLSC members during the state of emergency.

"The Town appreciates the unity and resilience of the community during this challenging time and will continue to provide regular updates as the situation evolves."
