Boil water advisory for Canmore, Alta. and area partially lifted
Some residents of Canmore, Alta. have been given the all clear by officials, while others still need to take precautions with their water supply.
Edmonton-based EPCOR, which oversees water utilities in the community, said a boil water advisory involving Canmore and a number of other areas has been partially lifted.
The order, issued by Alberta Health Services, is no longer in effect for:
- Dead Man's Flats;
- Harvie Heights;
- The Canmore Nordic Centre;
- Three Sisters Resort;
- Peaks of Grassi;
- Portions of Rundleview and;
- Portions of Homesteads.
"Effective immediately, residents and businesses in the green areas no longer need to boil their water before consumption. Residents and business in the remainder of the town of Canmore (red areas on the maps) are still required to boil water before consumption, until further notice," the company said in a release.
Residents and businesses that are in the areas under the boil water advisory should not consume any water directly from the tap, EPCOR said.
"Consumption of microbiologically-contaminated water may result in illness and stomach flu-like symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, stomach cramps and headaches."
In order to prevent illness, residents and business owners in the red areas must bring tap water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before:
- Brushing teeth;
- Cleaning raw foods;
- Preparing infant formula or juices;
- Making ice and;
- Handwashing dishes.
Water used for bathing, flushing or laundering clothes does not need to be boiled. Dishwashers can also be used as long as they have a hot temperature sanitizer cycle.
"Residents may instead choose to purchase and consume bottled water for the duration of this order," EPCOR said.
Alternatively, residents can obtain safe water from the following sources between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.:
- Canmore Recreation Centre, 1900 Eighth Ave.;
- Elizabeth Rummel School, 1033 Cougar Creek Dr.;
