RYLEY – Due to an issue with the main water line servicing 112 homes in the Village of Ryley, Alberta Health Services (AHS), has issued a boil water advisory for the area of 54 Avenue to 57 Avenue and 49th Street to 51st Street, effective immediately, as a precautionary measure.
All residents and businesses with the effected area are advised to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to any consumption, including:
Water used for bathing or washing clothes does not need to be boiled. For hand-washing, wash with soap and water and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing more than 60 per cent alcohol after drying your hands.
