Following testing, the Boil Water Advisory for the community of Bowness has been lifted.
Alberta Health Services (AHS) testing has confirmed that water in the community meets all water quality guidelines and standards and is safe for normal consumption.
All residents and businesses in Bowness can consume their water from the tap, as boiling is no longer required.
The City made changes to deliver safe drinking water from the Bearspaw Water Treatment Plant to the community of Bowness by bypassing the damaged feeder main.
Despite the advisory lifting, it is imperative that Calgarians continue to conserve water, so demand does not outstrip supply. The mandatory Stage 4 outdoor watering restrictions remains in place, as crews continue to work on the feeder main break near 16 Avenue N.W. and Home Road.
A fire ban is still in effect for the City of Calgary and 16 Avenue remains closed at Home Road N.W.
The City of Calgary thanks affected residents and businesses for their patience and cooperation during this time.
