 Leaks and Water Usage
Please ensure that there are no leaks in your water system as no adjustments/reductions can be made to your water bill for excessive consumption which may have resulted from a leak, burst pipe or fixture malfunction.

Suspect a Leak? Try these options:

  • Check taps, toilets, faucets, pipes, hoses, water softeners, water filters, humidifiers, and sprinkler systems for possible leaks. Any type of malfunction with your water softeners, humidifiers, irrigation system or air conditioning systems could be very costly.
  • Put food colouring in your toilet tank and if it seeps in the toilet bowl without flushing there is a leak.
  • Check your water filter system, these units can automatically go on "self-clean" mode, consuming thousands of litres of water daily.

Water Filtration Units and High Water Bills
Some houses use appliances such as humidifiers, water filtration units and water softeners that make the home more comfortable and can also use significant amounts of water. It is important that homeowners understand how these types of appliances work and how to control the amount of water they consume.

All appliances can malfunction and some water filtration units have been linked to extreme excessive water consumption. If you own any water filtration unit, we encourage you to monitor it regularly to ensure it is operating properly.

An increase in water use will result in high water bills. Water bill usage is based on the previous three months. If you think you have extreme usage this could be a result of many issues - outdoor watering, leaking tap, leaking outdoor tap or hose, water softener issues, ice makers and toilets, just to mention a few. You are responsible for the cost of all water that passes through your water meter, whether it is used or wasted.

The meters are electronic and the readings are automatic with an electronic reader. The town bills based on these numbers. We have yet to find a faulty water meter in town.

A simple way to test your meter is to read the meter, fill a 5-gallon pail, then read your meter again. This can help verify proper function.

The meters can generate an hourly report showing how many gallons have been used per hour during the previous billing period. These reports can be many pages long and are available for the cost of the printing if desired.

 Historic Metal Silhouette Banners

The Saltcoats Beautification Committee has been replacing the cloth banners that hung on the power poles along Commercial St with metal silhouette designs. The designs of the silhouette banners have been chosen to highlight Saltcoats' long and rich history. Some of the designs include a train and old station - Saltcoats was the "end of the line" in its early history, a Northwest Mounted Policeman - Saltcoats had one of the first barracks for the Northwest Mounted Police, an elevator with grain being delivered in a wagon, the old telephone office with a lineman up a pole, the old bank, a plow competition, and a tribute banner to honour our veterans. More banners highlight the groups of settlers who settled in this area - the Scottish Crofters, the Patagonian Welsh, the Ukrainians and the Hungarians. There is also a Treaty 4 banner to acknowledge our treaty relationship with First Nations. The committee has more banners on the drawing board. These designs will acknowledge  Metis people and British settlers, highlight Saltcoats being the first incorporated village in the Northwest Territories and feature the environment and the need to care for it. If you have any ideas for a design or want to donate to this project, please contact the Town Office. Click here to view pictures of some of the banners.

Saltcoats Historic Cemetery
Rejuvenation Project

Some progress has been made on aspects of the Saltcoats Historic Cemetery Rejuvenation Project. After a great start, donations have stalled and we need all who care about the cemetery’s maintenance and improvement to do what they can to provide funds and, very importantly, get the message out to family and friends who no longer live within the community but who would have loved ones buried in this cemetery. Personal notes, Facebook posts, whatever connects you with others, have already proven helpful. Please do all you can to pass the word to family and friends and to encourage them to help with this worthy effort to honour those who have gone before us. Donations can be made by cash, cheque and e-transfer. Cheques are to be made payable to Town of Saltcoats. E-transfers can be sent to For more information, a list of projects and ways to help, please click here.
