A boil-water order for a small town in southern Alberta will remain in place until at least Wednesday.

The province issued the order for Carmangay on Friday over concerns the water could be contaminated as the result of repairs done to the main water line.

The line has since been flushed, but the province says it will keep the order in place until they can verify the safety of the water through proper testing.

Carmangay is located near Lethbridge.
