5 TOWNS, 27,000 PEOPLE UNDER BWA IN QUÉBEC
The Régie intermunicipale d'aqueduc du Bas-Richelieu (AIBR), a water board that serves 5 neighbouring communities located just south of Montreal, issued a Boil Water Advisory on June 17 after a valve broke at the water filtration plant. The advisoy affects the towns of St-Denis-sur-Richelieu, St-Charles-sur-Richelieu, St-Marc-sur-Richelieu, St-Mathieu-de-Beloeil and St-Antoine-sur-Richelieu, with a combined population of 27,000.
"You'd have to call someone at the Régie," says Saint-Marc-sur-Richelieu Technical Services Director, Yvon Tardy. "I only know there was some issue at the plant. It's rare, he says, it's happens maybe once every 2 or 3 years".
"I'm the only one in the office," says the accountant at the Régie. Everone's gone to a conference, they won't be back until Monday. I know there was a broken valve, no bacteria. But you should call back on Monday." According to the Régie's website, the water filtation plant is managed by Dagua.
