After a short hiatus, Redwater residents are getting a vital service back.
 
On September 10, Alberta Health Services (AHS) announced that the town would be having their local public health services restored.
 
"After reviewing community health needs, we're very excited to announce that public health services will be in Redwater as of September 13," said Jennifer Beaulieu, AHS Area 7 public health manager.
 
In January of this year, AHS public health services in Redwater were temporarily interrupted due to renovations to the clinic space.
 
The returning services will include immunization for all ages, influenza and school immunizations, postpartum nursing care and support through the Healthy Beginnings program, as well as early childhood intervention visits.
 
The services will run every second Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at the Redwater Health Centre.
 
"AHS is committed to enhancing care in communities and the return of public health services to Redwater reflects that commitment," added Beaulieu.
 
Earlier this year, Redwater residents needed to travel to Fort Saskatchewan, Gibbons, Morinville or St. Albert for those services.
