Ward 11 News: Elbow River Contamination Advisory

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
Alberta Health Services has re-issued a contaminated water advisory for the Elbow River between Sandy Beach and 9 Avenue SE. While this advisory has been in place since July 8th, citizens are being reminded of this issue as the warm summer weather continues.
Please note that some of the contamination is from human fecal material (as well as wildlife, livestock and domestic animals) and also includes contamination impacts from recreation, stormwater and changing river flows. While identifying the sources of contamination has been a challenge, it is important to note that this contamination is not believed to be due to an issue with the City’s sanitary infrastructure nor does it impact our drinking water.
Please  avoid recreational activities in this section of the Elbow River until further notification.
