A boil water advisory is in effect for the Village of Hill Spring in southwest Alberta.

It was issued late Wednesday afternoon by Alberta Health Services as a precaution.

Officials say construction on the drinking water system resulted in complete depressurization which makes the water vulnerable to contamination.

All residents and businesses are advised to bring water to a rolling boil for at least a minute before consuming which includes drinking, brushing teeth or rinsing mouth, cleaning raw foods, preparing infant formula or juices, making ice etc.
