Longueuil, December 7, 2018, 4:00 p.m. — A boil water advisory for part of Greenfield Park borough limited by Soucy, Kimber and Taschereau streets (map available at longueuil.quebec) is still in effect. This measure is necessary due to laboratory results which indicate the presence of E. coli bacteria in the water mains.
Residents in all sectors affected are recommended to boil the water for at least one minute before drinking it. This advisory will remain in effect until Ville de Longueuil informs the citizens that the situation is resolved.
Water can be used straight from the tap for washing dishes (dry thoroughly), doing laundry, showering and bathing.
As for young children and infants, it is it is best to wash them with a facecloth to prevent them from swallowing the water and to make sure they do not bring wet objects to their mouths.
For more information on this advisory, go the the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques website at: http://www.mddelcc.gouv.qc.ca/eau/potable/avisebullition/faq.htm
