According to an update from the Town of Irricana, the Boil Water Advisory that was issued by Alberta Health Services last week has been lifted.
“We are pleased to announce that the Boil Water Advisory has been lifted and that our water is safe for normal use," stated the Town's CAO, Doug Hafichuk, in a statement. "Thank you to our provincial partners for their expertise and support, as well as our incredible community members for their patience and encouragement over the past several days."
The Boil Water Advisory was issued by AHS Tuesday after the depressurization of the Town’s water distribution system led to localized flooding at many local households in Irricana on Monday night.
"The Town of Irricana has been working closely with Alberta Environment and Parks and Alberta Health Services to ensure the health and safety of residents following the depressurization of the Town’s water distribution system on Feb. 27, 2023," the statement from the municipality reads.
"Following extensive testing, water quality has been determined to meet the required standard for human consumption. The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted. Residents no longer need to boil water before use."
As a final step, residents are asked to run all taps in their household/business for some minutes to ensure all lines contain fresh water.
