The boil water advisory for Grunthal has been lifted.
The advisory had been in place since Tuesday evening as the result of the annual reservoir cleaning. Rob Driedger, Manager of Engineering and Utilities for the Rural Municipality of Hanover said an air lock created within the system shut down their distribution pumps in Grunthal. This resulted in a temporary loss of water pressure.
The Office of Drinking Water required the boil water advisory for a minimum of 48 hours. Before the advisory could be lifted, the water needed to pass two tests to confirm there was no coliform in the system.
On Friday afternoon, Drinking Water Officer Colin Nakata advised the municipality that the Grunthal public water system has met all conditions for rescinding the boil water advisory and that bacteriological testing results meet regulatory standards. As a result, normal water usage can be resumed.
