SPRINGBROOK – Residents of Springbrook are currently experiencing a disruption of water service due to a fire that occurred last night at a water treatment facility.
County Fire Services arrived and quickly got the fire under control.
No injuries were reported, however there is currently no water for Springbrook residents, as the treatment facility had to be shut down in order to fight the fire.
Red Deer County will continue to provide updates as soon as possible.
Crews are currently working at the scene and will continue to work until water can be restored.
Alberta Health Services has also issued a boil water advisory for Springbrook.
All users of Springbrook’s drinking water supply are asked to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to any consumption, including for drinking, cleaning raw foods, brushing teeth, preparing infant formula or juices, making ice, and handwashing dishes.
Water used for bathing, or for laundering of clothing, does not need to be boiled.
The boil water advisory takes effect once water service has been restored and will remain in place until further notice.
