IMPORTANT NOTICE

April 24th Update:

The Village of Beiseker is requesting all residents and businesses to please conserve water, and to keep sewage usage to a minimum. The overland flooding is taxing our infrastructure and putting our water and sewer systems in jeopardy.

The Beiseker Community Centre is being opened for any residents who may be evacuated from their homes. Rocky View County Fire Services are also in the village to assist during this emergency.

For more information about what to do during our local state of emergency, please see the link below from Alberta Health Services.

Thank you for your cooperation.

LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY

Village of Beiseker Council has declared a local state of emergency with concerns of ongoing and projected overland flooding in the municipality.

Alberta Municipal Affairs has been notified and an Alberta Emergency Information Alert has been created. Local news organizations have also been notified. This notice has also been published on our electronic billboard at the Village Office, and on our web site.
