According to Paul de Jonge, Alberta Health Services (AHS) has lifted the boil water advisory (BWA) on the affected portion east of Lethbridge, north of Highway 4 and south of Highway 3, of the County of Lethbridge Rural Water Association Ltd.
It was stated in an e-mail to the Sunny South News, the cause of the BWA was a low-pressure situation.
This has been corrected and the lines have been flushed.
As per recommendation by AHS, de Jonge added, those who were affected are recommended to disinfect their cistern and send a sample to AHS.
