Due to issues at the Beaver Lake Booster, Lac La Biche County staff worked late into the night flushing the water mains in Young’s Beach and Holowachuk Estates. The main lines have been tested, and we confirmed that they meet and exceed regulatory requirements. There was never a risk to health.
Although the main line has been flushed and tested, the service line going to your house may still have some remaining discolouration. To remedy this, run your cold tap for 5-15 minutes (depending on length of service) and it will clear up. If the discoloured water is coming out of your hot water tap and you have a hot water tank, you may have to drain your tank. If your system does not clear up within the recommended time or you have any other concerns, please call 780-623-7494. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
