In a Monday evening update, The City of Calgary stated that Alberta Health Services (AHS) testing has confirmed that water in the community meets all water quality guidelines and standards and is safe for normal consumption.

The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted for the northwest community of Bowness.

"All residents and businesses in Bowness can consume their water from the tap, as boiling is no longer required. Residents do not need to flush their systems to access safe drinking water.

The City also added that it has made changes to deliver safe drinking water from the Bearspaw Water Treatment Plant to the community of Bowness by bypassing the damaged feeder main. 

"Despite the advisory lifting, it is imperative that Calgarians continue to conserve water, so demand does not outstrip supply. The mandatory Stage 4 outdoor watering restrictions remain in place, as crews continue to work on the feeder main break near 16 Avenue Northwest and Home Road."

A fire ban is still in effect for the City of Calgary, as well as Airdrie and 16 Avenue remain closed at Home Road Northwest. 

Airdrie remains under level four water restrictions, though there is no Boil Water Advisory for Airdrie.
