Customers of a portion of the County of Lethbridge Rural Water Association Co-op (CLRWA) who were placed under a Boil Water Order by Alberta Health Services (AHS) on Sept. 23 are advised the order will remain in effect until further notice. This is due to the possibility of contamination from the depressurization of co-op lines.
The Boil Water Order was implemented by AHS, and therefore, can only be lifted by AHS. The governing bodies are investigating the cause of the depressurization and need to ensure a permanent solution is in place before the order is removed and are working hard to achieve that goal.
A map of the affected area has been posted on Lethbridge County’s website at lethcounty.ca.
Information from AHS, including updates on the Boil Water Order and on what to do during a Boil Water Order can be found at myhealth.alberta.ca/alberta/pages/Boil-water-advisory-how-to-use- water-safely-in-your-home.aspx.
The order is to ensure the health and safety of Co-op customers.
Customers of the County of Lethbridge Rural Water Association Co-op (CLRWA) can direct questions to Sid Bilcik at 403-634-5411 or Paul de Jonge at 403-795-3931.
Residents of the Town of Coaldale are not impacted.
