Boil Water Advisory at St. Vital got Removed

Boil-Water-AdvisoryAs a result of removal of a boil water advisory, the residents of the southeast Winnipeg are now free from the fears of taking precautions related to their tap water.

In accordance to an announcement made by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, the precautionary advisory will no longer continue to be in effect. Sources suggested that the advisory affected near about
12,500 households in an area within southern St. Vital.

The area that was under the effect of advisory includes the south of Bishop Grandin Boulevard to the Perimeter Highway, and east of the Red River to the Seine River. The advisory was announced to be in action on Tuesday by the provincial government.

The measures were taken after discovering positive results of lower level of E. coli bacteria in three area samples. However, the tests conducted on the second batch of the water samples from the same area resulted negative for the bacteria.

As per the email by the WHRA, the confirmation of negative results justifies the fact that the water meets all the required health and safety water quality regulations and guidelines.

As per statement given by a health official, it is extremely rare to observe a positive water result in the area. He also suggested that there were greater number of chances for the results to turn negative.
