Updated at 4:12 p.m. Friday, July 22nd - according to information provided by the R.M. of Stanley to PembinaValleyOnline, the boil water advisory for the Schanzenfeld Water System has been lifted.  All regular water use can resume.

For our initial story about the work which prompted the BWA, please see it below.


A boil water advisory for the Schanzenfeld water system will go in to effect Wednesday, July 20 at 9 a.m. Crews will be repairing a water break on the main line.

A public notice issued by Manitoba Health says the system maintenance will lead to the loss of water pressure in the Chortitz, Friedensruh, Schanzenfeld and all rural users on the Schanzenfeld line portion of the RM of 
Stanley public water system. Residents may also experience low water pressure during this time, and Manitoba Health says distribution depressurization can compromise the safety of the water supply, therefore the boil water advisory has been issued.

Until further notice, citizens should use boiled water or bottled water for:
• Drinking and making ice
• Preparing beverages, including infant formula
• Preparing food
• Brushing Teeth

The Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the water supplied by this water system no longer presents a risk to public health, noted Manitoba Health. 

The R.M. of Stanley says an update will be posted on the Municipality's web site on the water advisory icon at the bottom of the home page, along with a further Connect notice confirming the advisory has been lifted.
