Alberta Health Services (AHS) issued a boil water order for the Village of Warner, 69 km southeast of Lethbridge today, June 29.

The community’s water treatment plant is currently unable to properly treat water due to high levels of sediment and cannot guarantee safe, quality water for human consumption.

AHS is working with Alberta Environment and the village to monitor drinking water safety and quality. The order will be lifted when all water quality parameters are satisfactorily achieved and test results show the water is safe to drink.

Residents who use water from the Village of Warner are advised to bring their water to a rapid, rolling boil for at least one minute prior to using it for domestic purposes, including drinking, making infant formula and juices, cooking, brushing teeth, washing raw foods and making ice. Alternatively, residents may use bottled water.

The boil water order will remain in effect until the situation is resolved and water quality is tested and approved by a public health inspector.

For health information, please contact Health Link Alberta at 1-866-408-LINK (5465).
