Village of Debden Precautionary Advisory
Whenever the water in the Village has been compromised, for example a water line break, problems at the water treatment plant or depressurization of the water line a precautionary boil water issue will be issued by Sask Water. If at any time the water is turned off please take the precautions of the boil water advisory. It is always better to be safe. The Village of Debden will place posters at all the businesses as soon as the advisory has been issued and as soon as it has been rescinded. After each precautionary boil water advisory, samples must be sent to the lab to be tested for contamination. Most boil water issues will last from 4 to 10 days. Please keep this notice so you have it handy for anytime the water is turned off. If you have questions regarding this please call the village office at 306-724-2040.
