A water boil water advisory has been issued for the City of Longueuil and several other communities on the South Shore.
E.coli bacteria was discovered in the water supply of Saint-Hubert, Boucherville and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Old Longueuil.
Any water coming from the taps in these areas must be boiled for at least one minute before being used for drinking or brushing teeth.
Hot water can be used straight from the tap for washing dishes (dry thoroughly), doing laundry, showering and bathing.
The advisory is in effect until further notice. Check the city website for further details and updates.
