Delburne Utility E-Billing
The Village of Delburne is providing property owners with the opportunity to have their Delburne monthly utility bills sent by email instead of a paper copy. There is no obligation to sign up for e-billing as paper copies will still be mailed out.
This new e-billing service is for property owners only. If you rent out your property, it is your responsiblity to make arrangements with your tenant regarding utility bill payments. The Village of Delburne will NOT email or mail utility bills to renters.
Utility e-billing will start in the next few months. For filing purposes, please fill out one form per property if you own multiple properties. Thank you!

Utility Bill Payments:
Here's how you can pay your utility bill:
- In person at the Delburne Municipal Office (2111 20th St) during business hours. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or debit. Unfortunately credit cards cannot be taken as the credit card companies charge high user and maintenance fees.
- Delburne Municipal Office door after-hours dropbox: Put your cheque or cash along with the top portion of your invoice in an envelope and place it in the after-hours dropbox of the front door of the Municipal office (2111 20th St).
- Online Banking with Servus Credit Union, Scotiabank, and ATB Financial. Unfortunately these are the only three financial institutions that take Delburne Utility bill payments as they do not charge fees to municipalities.
If you have any questions about utility bill payments, contact our office at 403-749-3606 or email:
If you have a water emergency, please contact Public Works at 403-749-3607.

Locating Utilities - Alberta One-Call
Whether you are landscaping, building a new fence or deck, or simply planting a garden, disturbing the ground on your property can cause damage to a buried utility. Some utilities are buried mere centimetres below the surface.
The result of a contact with a buried line can range from loss of an essential service for you or your neighbours to serious injury or fatalities. The financial costs of repairing any damage you cause to a buried utility will be borne by you, the excavator. Before you disturb the ground for any reason:
Know What's Below
Contact Alberta One-Call to request that the buried utilities on your property be located and marked at least three full working days before you plan to dig. Remember that during the busy Spring or Fall seasons, it may take longer for utility owners to respond, so contact them early.
Alberta One-Call will send a ticket to the Village of Delburne to locate the water & sewer lines on your property. Please give Public Works three working days to fulfill your request.
To submit a locate request via phone, contact Alberta One-Call at: 1-800-242-3447
Alberta One-Call is recommending that homeowners fill out an online locate request form as they are experiencing a higher call volume.
