How to Access Bulk Water Stations

The Municipal District of Taber (MDT) Bulk Water Dispensing Stations provides bulk water to residents for residential and agricultural use. To access the dispensing stations you must have an existing MDT bulk water account. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one.

How to Create an Account

  • To set up a bulk water account please call or visit the Administration Office, or download and submit the online application form here.
  • Once a bulk water account is created, you will be assigned a three-digit Access Number and then prompted to create your unique four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). 
  • These numbers are required to be entered into the pin pad at the bulk water stations to draw water.
  •  If you lose or forget your PIN, or would like to change your PIN or to obtain your account information, please contact Administration at 403-223-3541, Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
