Boil water advisories in place for water leak repairs

February 17, 2016 3:18 PM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Seventeen homes on 44 Street along with two businesses on Gaetz Avenue are under boil water advisories until further notice following detected water leaks.

Water is currently shut off to the homes just north of the hospital as well as to the two businesses at 50 Avenue and 30 Street while crews work to repair the leak. As soon as water is back on, any affected residents are advised to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before drinking it, cooking, brushing teeth and washing food.

All affected areas will be notified by City staff going door-to-door. In the case that no one answers, a notice and information package will be left at the front door.

Boil water advisories are issued as a precautionary measure following water leaks as the water supply may be contaminated from soil during the repair process. Once the line is repaired, The City sends water samples to Alberta Health Services to ensure the water is safe to use.

For questions regarding the boil water advisory, please call Environmental Services at 403-342-8750.
