Love local

The “Glass of the Sask" is a celebration of things that are uniquely Edmonton. 

We’ve partnered with local restaurants and now, local events to celebrate some of the things that make Edmonton special like the North Saskatchewan River which is the source of Edmonton’s drinking water.

At participating restaurants, EPCOR's award-winning tap water will be served tableside in a special edition carafe that celebrates the source of that water - an iconic jewel of our city – the North Saskatchewan River.

From the river to your table 

Just like the food, the tap water served at these restaurants is high quality and great tasting. Edmonton’s drinking water comes from the North Saskatchewan River which is bor​n in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The final product is treated for up to 12 hours at one of our water treatment plants before being delivered to over one million taps in Edmonton and surrounding communities.

As water experts and enthusiasts, we're pretty proud of our safe, healthy and great-tasting drinking water and the beautiful river it comes from.
