AHS lifts boil water order for the Town of Millet

Alberta Health Services has lifted a boil water advisory for the Town of Millet.

AHS issued the advisory on May 24 as a result of a loss in water pressure throughout the water distribution line that provides the community’s drinking water.

In a news release on May 27, AHS said that satisfactory water quality has been restored to the town.

According to the release, residents and businesses can return to normal water consumption practices as boiling is no longer required, provided they flush their plumbing systems before initial use.

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. Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health support and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta.
