Alberta Health Services (AHS) has confirmed that water quality has been restored to a safe level to all water system users serviced by the Fort McMurray water treatment plant.
As such, the boil-water advisory has been lifted, effective immediately, for all areas with active water service by the water treatment plant, including the Abasand, Beacon Hill and Waterways neighbourhoods.
However, the water mains and service connections in several heavily damaged areas of the Abasand, Beacon Hill and Waterways neighbourhoods have not been flushed, do not have active water service and are currently out of service. These water mains and service connections are not in the “green homes” area that is currently under review by the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
Municipal staff will be flushing and rehabilitating these water mains and service connections moving forward. Please refer to the following maps for details on buildings with and without water service.
