BWA Update: Cause of service disruption determined, boil water advisory lifted

November 20, 2018 11:56 PM

(Red Deer, Alberta)The boil water advisory for the West Park and West Lake neighbourhoods was lifted after multiple clear samples and consultation with Alberta Health Services.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. on November 20, 2018, residents in multiple neighbourhoods reported little to no water pressure. Water was restored by 10:35 p.m. to all affected areas, and crews flushed affected areas and took samples to ensure water quality.

Environmental Services has investigated the cause and determined that an uninterrupted power supply failure in the control system resulted in a total system shut down. Pumps at the booster station and Water Treatment Plant were manually turned on, and water pressure was restored within 20 minutes of the failure.

After a disruption of this nature, lines can be disturbed with sediment. Though the water is safe, residents are encouraged to run taps for five minutes to flush their lines.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Environmental Services at 403-342-8750.
