The Municipality is reminding residents of Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates, Fort McMurray No. 468 First Nation and area campgrounds to clean and test their water tanks.
The Municipality strongly recommends that all residents and commercial properties using cisterns (water tanks) for drinking water drain, clean and disinfect their water tanks prior to use. Cleaning tanks following long periods of disuse should be common practice.
While all cisterns are private property, the Municipality encourages healthy and responsible use of private systems that are supplied with municipal drinking water.
The Municipality is here to assist with this process by offering advice on how to drain, clean and disinfect your cisterns. Pamphlets from Alberta Health Services (AHS) explaining how to clean and test tanks are also available online at rmwb.ca/boil or ahs.ca/wildfire.
If you have any questions regarding your tank or your drinking water, you can contact the following:
- Alberta Health Services: 811
- Pulse Call Line (evenings, weekends, holidays): 780-743-7000
