UPDATE: Alberta Health Services lifted the boil water advisory for the village of Rockyford on Saturday, May 8.

An emergency alert has been issued for Rockyford, Alta., over concerns the water in the village may be unsafe to drink.

The province issued the boil water order for Rockyford just after 9:30 p.m. on Monday, explaining the issue was caused by the distribution system being without pressure for “an extended period of time.”

“Boil water, bring water to a rapid rolling boil for one minute prior to use,” the advisory said.
