EFFECTIVE MARCH 28, 2023 (3:15 PM) - There is a Boil Water Notice for the Moyie Water System in place.
Water intended for drinking, washing fruits or vegetables, making juice or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled at a rolling boil for at least one minute.
The Boil Water Notice will remain in effect until the approved lab results have been returned, which is expected to be several days.
The Moyie Water System receives its groundwater from a well 57 meters deep. Water is pumped from the well using a 15 horsepower well pump up to a 320m3 reservoir which maintains the pressure in the distribution system. The water is not chlorinated. RDEK operators are on site 2-3 times per week to ensure proper operation and perform monthly bacteriological sampling. The pump house is also outfitted with automatic alarm dialers to alert staff when regular functions are compromised.
