Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory Issued for City’s southeast
MOOSE JAW - The City and the Water Security Agency have issued a Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory for the southeast areas of the City of Moose Jaw, including Pleasant View, River Park and University Heights. The area affects approximately 100 residents.
- Due to needed repairs, a water main has been shutoff. The shutoff has resulted in below required chlorine levels in your area. Levels have been monitored by the City since the shutoff.
- The City has ordered the required specialty parts to do the repairs and timeline for arrival is 7 – 10 days.
- Due to these low chlorine levels, residents in the area are advised to boil drinking water.
- This is simply a precautionary measure. There is no confirmed contamination.
- The water is fine to use for hygienic purposes (showering, etc.) but should be boiled for consumptive purposes (cooking, drinking, oral hygiene).
- The City is working with the Water Security Agency to issue this advisory to ensure the safety of residents’ drinking water.
- The advisory will be in effect for at least 2 weeks, beginning today.
- Flushing and testing will continue until chlorine levels are back up to standards of the Water Security Agency.
- Affected residents will be advised when the advisory is over.
The City of Moose Jaw appreciates your patience and cooperation to ensure residents’ drinking water remains safe and secure.
