Chestermere Reservoir

Originally an intermittent slough, the Canadian Pacific Railway constructed a storage reservoir to balance water diverted from the Bow River for irrigation called Reservoir No. 1, or Chestermere Reservoir. The reservoir is a popular oasis in the prairies with recreational watercraft, fishing and beaches.

Water Level

The WID manages the flow of water in and out of the reservoir with outlet control gates. The reservoir is raised to its operational level in the spring.

Water Quality

The WID is committed to delivering raw water for the benefit of all of our users. Water quality is tested regularly at multiple locations within the WID by third parties including Alberta Agriculture and independent environmental professionals. Our team regularly reviews test results and responds as needed, but we all have a part in keeping our water safe and clean.
