Advisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by Sourceia - Eco-houses

In the early morning hours of November 24, a broken aqueduct caused a boil water advisory (BWA) in part of Montréal. This also caused the temporary shut down of the Montréal Casino.

Marilyne Laroche-Corbeil, Media Relations Ville de Montréal, said that "the break was caused, accidentally, by a private contractor while drilling." She added that "a 24-inch main pipe was damaged."

Laroche-Corbeil explained that a BWA "has been issued and is in effect until further notice." The notice affects as many as 2500 residents.

"Repair teams are preparing to replace the damaged section and hope to complete the work today," Laroche-Corbeil said, "commissioning operations for this section will continue during the weekend and [into] the following week."

The BWA remains in place for the time being, and crews are at work. When asked about the timetable for rescinding the order Laroche-Corbeil said "at least one sample will be taken, 24-hours before lifting the advisory."
