A water main break forced the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead to shut of water service to the community of Shoal Lake on Tuesday morning.

Water service should return by about noon, the municipality’s chief administrative officer Nadine Gapka said, noting that once water service returns they’ll put in place a boil water advisory.

It’s a precautionary measure they put in place whenever the system depressurizes.

Notices were being prepared as Gapka spoke late Tuesday morning.

The water main break occurred across the street from the municipality office, with Gapka reporting a crew busy seen at work outside repairing the situation.
