I am sharing this because with winter here, there will always be water main breaks with pipes freezing, and not many Calgarians know what to do when it happens. See below for more information, and if you click here you can see current water main breaks, and the status of each.
Under normal circumstances, water main breaks are repaired, and water is back on within 48 hours. We prioritize breaks based on factors such as the risk of property damage, impact to critical facilities (like hospitals or schools) and the number of customers out of water.
Call 311 when:
- Your water is not working, and you have not been notified of an outage.
- You see water coming up through or pooling in the grass, road or sidewalk.
Current main breaks and water outages
Note: Our priority is to repair a break and restore water service. Outages are added to this list and information updated as crews are able. Please call 311 to report or if you have concerns about a water outage.
