Alberta community that lost water service expects to lift state of emergency

An Alberta community that declared a state of emergency after losing much of its water service expects the taps will be running again soon.

TWO HILLS — An Alberta community that declared a state of emergency after losing much of its water service expects the taps will be running again soon.

About 200 homes in the town of Two Hills east of Edmonton have been without full service since Tuesday night when a water tower pipe broke.

Mayor Mark Kussman says the pipe will soon be fixed and the state of emergency is expected to be lifted sometime tonight.

Kussman says full service probably won’t be restored until Thursday because the system must be flushed, but clean drinking water is available in the interim at two sites in town.

The community has banned yard watering and outside fires until water is fully restored.
