In the Town of Indian Head, we are proud of the high-quality of our drinking water. Our modern, sophisticated system ensures that all residents can rely on a water supply that is both plentiful and safe.
Reading your water meter requires that Town staff enter onto your property to scan the meter pad on the exterior of your residence or business. In rare situations the Town staff may have to enter into your residence or business, easy entry is required and appreciated. Property owners are asked to keep their water meters and meter pads clear of obstructions to better accommodate the meter reading process. (Unmetered premises are charged a monthly flat rate for water consumption, based on the monthly minimum for metered premises.)
Water service may be shut off for maintenance or other purposes. If your water has been shut off, or you wish to turn off your water, please contact the Town Office at (306) 695-3344.

Indian Head's domestic water comes from Town owned wells in the Squirrel Hills. The water is gravity driven from the wells to the Town requiring minimal pumping.
The Town conducts an annual Water Quality and Compliance Report on the water and sewer system, as mandated by the province, to ensure our water service is safe and reliable.
