The waterman is under new ownership!



Over the past 30 years, Doug and Susan Hughes have operated The Waterman. After many great years servicing the community, the Hughes have decided to retire. 

With that, the business is being transitioned to another Strathcona County family, Greg and Kirsten Hamilton.  Greg has spent 29 years working in the transportation industry hauling liquefied dangerous goods throughout Alberta, and is looking forward to working locally with many families he knows. Kirsten grew up in the County and spent many hours with the original Waterman, Doug, and his family. The Hamilton’s are excited to continue working in the community and ensuring your households continue to receive the water you need, when you need it. 

We’d like to take the opportunity to thank Doug and Susan for their hard work and dedication in building The Waterman into the successful, customer-driven business that it is today. 

Over the next few months, the operations of The Waterman will transition; Doug will be working closely with Greg to ensure it’s a smooth road for all. You can expect a knock on your door from Greg, for a social distance hello. 

Thank you for your continued business, and looking forward to getting to know you!

Sincerely, Greg and Kirsten Hamilton
