Boil water in Saint-Hubert and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville

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.
