Description: Alberta Emergency Alert - Water Supply Alert Updated
There is a water main break in the Village of Rycroft that could not be isolated and has resulted in a loss of water supplies .
The Village of Rycroft was forced to shut down the water distribution system due to low water levels in the potable water supplies.
Repairs are being arranged and we hope to have all services restored as soon as possible.
Since we were unable to maintain positive pressure on the system, additional sampling and testing will be conducted in order to verify that water is safe to drink.
Action to take:
- Until further notice Do not consume tap water
- Drink bottled water only
- Watch for further directions from local authorities
- This alert will remain in effect until repairs are completed and the system is restored to normal levels.
