A boil water order has been lifted for most people living in the small village of Carmangay in southern Alberta as of 2 p.m. Tuesday.

However, the Carmangay Outreach School and people who live on Whyte Street and the acreages at the south end of Alberta Avenue are still advised to boil their water due to a new leak and water shut off.

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.

Carmangay is located near Lethbridge.
