The precautionary Boil Water Advisory issued on Wednesday for West Lake and West Park has been lifted, with the exception of 68 houses on West Park Crescent and Red Deer College.

“Testing came back negative for the majority of properties within the advisory and these residents can resume regular water use,” said Alex Monkman, Water Superintendent. “However, further testing is required in specific areas and we’re working with Alberta Health Services to conduct this testing as quickly as possible.”

Properties that remain within the Boil Water Advisory are from 5701 to 5854 West Park Crescent, as well as Red Deer College. City of Red Deer staff have notified these properties directly that they will remain under the Boil Water Advisory until further testing is completed.

For the remainder the properties, City staff will not be providing door to door notifications; however, electronic message boards in the area will be updated and alerts will be sent out using Notify Red Deer.

“We’re encouraging residents to help us spread the word by telling their neighbours that the Boil Water Advisory has been lifted,” said Monkman.
