The Village of Radium Hot Springs has lifted the Boil Water Notice if put into effect earlier this week.
Managing to completely flush all of the water mains within the Village boundary, the municipality deemed it safe to lift the Boil Water Notice.
“Turbidity levels originating from Forster’s Creek continue to diminish and the water treatment plant has been operating at 100% capacity,” said the Village of Radium Hot Springs. “Turbidity levels of the drinking water leaving the treatment plant have been well within normal parameters since this past Wednesday.”
Originally, the Village believed the Boil Water Notice would be lifted sometime next week but the water quality dramatically increased in just a couple of days.
Because the water mains had to be flushed, residents may have experience lower water pressure at certain times, but said the flushing was necessary to clean out any sediment left in the water mains.
Residents and businesses in Radium Hot Springs are now being encouraged to flush their own water lines as best as they can to get rid of any remaining sediment in the system.
“We thank everyone for their patience while we have dealt with this weather event and its impacts to our drinking water system.”
