Chestermere Lake Advisory

On Friday, August 14, the City of Chestermere advised recreational access to water would not be permitted for several days, after recent test results indicated higher than acceptable bacteria in the water.


Chestermere Lake is a reservoir, fed with raw water from the Bow River, and provides irrigation service to the entire WID system. The water is tested regularly by both the WID and the City of Chestermere. The WID’s testing indicates the water is safe for agricultural use.
