Preventive measures are being put in place following a test result that reveals the presence of Escherichia coli in the water of the aqueduct serving Saint-Hubert and the city of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
Further analysis is ongoing, but for now, it is recommended that citizens boil water for at least one minute. Until the release of a notice of a return to normal, it is desirable to use boiled or bottled water for:
- Drinking and beverage preparation, making ice cubes;
- Preparing bottles and baby food;
- Washing and preparing foods eaten raw (fruits, vegetables, etc.).
- preparing foods that do not require prolonged cooking (canned soups, desserts, etc.).
- Brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth.
You can use unboiled tap water for:
- Washing dishes in hot water, making sure to dry it well;
- Washing clothes and taking a shower or bath;
- Make sure young children do not swallow water while bathing or wash them with a washcloth.
This notice is effective immediately and shall remain in force until a press release is issued by Ville de Longueuil. For more information, citizens can call 450 463-7000.
