Critical water supply alert. Updated June 7 at 1:40 p.m.

The MRU pool is closed as of 3 p.m. on Friday, June 7

Due to an extensive water main break, the City of Calgary issued mandatory outdoor water restrictions on the morning of Thursday, June 6. In addition, everyone is being asked to reduce indoor water use to help maintain the supply for critical functions such as drinking water and fire suppression. 

What you can do on campus

  • Hold off on using dishwashers in office areas.
  • Don’t run the water in sinks with user-controlled taps.
  • Scrape food into compost bins, rather than rinsing off plates.
  • If you’re in Residence, delay doing laundry and dishes, and limit showers to three minutes.
  • Think about any water usage and delay when possible. Using water to meet health code standards is exempt from the restrictions.

What Mount Royal is doing

  • The irrigation system has been shut down, which includes filling the pond.
  • Grounds will use water from the pond to water the one permanent planter on campus as needed. Other planters have been moved into the shop area so they don’t dry out in the sun.
  • All plantings have been put on hold.
  • Scheduled power washing and washing vehicles is delayed until after the restrictions have been lifted. 
Visit the City of Calgary’s homepage for the latest updates on the situation and to learn what you can do at home.
