LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 5, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - 3:30 p.m. — Ville de Longueuil is maintaining boil water advisory in Greenfield Park borough and Le Moyne sector until at least Sunday. For Brossard and Saint-Lambert, boil water advisory has been lifted at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 5.
Boil water advisory in Greenfield Park borough and Le Moyne sector STILL RUNNING
Additional tests will be done today in the borough of Greenfield Park and Le Moyne sector. As the sample causing the release of the boil water advisory came from Greenfield Park, this measure is necessary in order to comply to the Règlement sur la qualité de l'eau potable of the ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MDDELCC). The results of these tests will be known Sunday. Longueuil will then issue another status report in order to keep citizens informed.
Ville de Longueuil reminds citizens of these sectors that, until further notice, it is recommended to boil tap water for at least one minute before consumption.
However, unboiled tap water can be used for washing dishes with hot water, making sure to dry it well, washing clothes, showering or bathing. Regarding young children and infants, it is recommended to wash them with a face cloth to prevent them from swallowing water and making sure they do not put soaked objects in their mouth.
Boil water advisory in the municipalities of Brossard and Saint-Lambert LIFTED
Last Thursday, as a precaution, Ville de Longueuil issued a boil water advisory for all areas served by the network of drinking water supplied by Le Royer plant, including the cities of Brossard and Saint-Lambert. The test results obtained from this network since then confirmed that the water is safe for consumption for Brossard and Saint-Lambert.
