Description: Alberta Emergency Alert - Water Quality Alert
Water may be unsafe to drink or use. Power has been restored to the water treatment plant but the water may not be safe to consume. Alberta Health Services has enacted a boil water advisory for the Village of Hines Creek.
Don't use tap water for drinking, preparing food, making juices, and vegetables, making rice, or preparing infant formula.
Throw away any ice, filtered water, drinks, or food made with contaminated water.
Don't use a home water filter to try to make your water safe. Home water filters are not able to safely treat contaminated water.
Don't give your pets tap water to drink.
Don't use tap water for a pod-style coffee maker. A regular drip coffee maker tends to be safe to use as the water reaches a high enough temperature.
How to make your water safe to drink
Bring your water to a rolling boil for at least 1 minute before drinking and preparing food.
Store boiled water in a clean and covered container in the fridge after letting it cool.
Action to take:
- Bring water to a rolling boil for at least 1 minute before drinking and preparing food
- Do not give potentially contaminated water to pets.
