A boil water advisory that was in place for three southwest Calgary communities has been lifted by Alberta Health Services.
On Saturday the City of Calgary said the advisory had been lifted for Silverado. On Sunday that advisory was also lifted for Belmont and Yorkville.
"This follows testing that confirmed that water in the three communities meets all water quality guidelines and standards and is safe for normal consumption," the city said in a media release.
A watermain break Thursday afternoon disrupted water supply to a large portion of those communities at the far southwest corner of the city.
The city said residents, businesses and visitors of all three areas can resume normal consumption of water after they do the following:
Household faucets: Turn on all taps and flush water lines for at least 20 minutes. Wash tap aerators and screens in hot soapy water then disinfect them for 10 minutes in a solution of one part bleach to nine parts water.
Refrigerators with water and ice dispensers, water coolers, filters and automatic ice makers: Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions for flushing, cleaning and sanitizing. Run water for 20 minutes before using.
Hot water tank: Drain and refill hot water tanks that are set below 45°C (normal setting is 60°C).
Water softener: Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle. Follow the instructions from the manufacturer.
