Spirit River’s water quality gets all-clear from AHS

Alberta Health Services (AHS) has announced satisfactory water quality has been restored in the Town of Spirit River. Consequently, the boil water advisory issued on Wednesday, June 16, has been lifted.

“All Town of Spirit River residents and businesses can return to normal water consumption practices; boiling is no longer required,” an AHS announcement said.

AHS also said residents with health concerns can contact Health Link to speak with a registered nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week, toll-free at 811.

A mechanical issue at the town’s water treatment plant combined with a seasonal high water demand has led to the boil water advisory.
