City of Lethbridge implements Boil Water Order

As of 4 p.m. today City of Lethbridge water will no longer be drinkable and there is a Boil Water Order in place.  This includes residents of Picture Butte, Coaldale and Coalhurst as well.

Please cooperate and do not hoard water.  We are at risk of not having enough water available for fire suppression.

Please tell your neighbors, friends and family as well in case they have not heard this news.

We will remain in a State of Local Emergency until which time our Water Treatment Plant is stabilized and we have adequate reserves in our reservoirs.

This is in effect until further notice and residents are thanked in advance for their cooperation.
