RAGUENEAU, QC: TEST RESULTS LAST THING STANDING IN WAY OF REMOVING BWA, QC



This story is brought to you in part by Multi-Use Trailer-System


The Municipalité de Ragueneau, in the Côte-Nord Region of Quèbec, was placed under a Boil Water Advisory on August 21. According to the notice on the town website, and social media pages there were "low levels of chlorine in the distribution system following [a] power outage."

The notice remains front and centre on Ragueneau's homepage; it however does not appear on the listing published by the Ministère de Développement durable, Environnement et Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MDDELCC) because the province does not publish water advisories caused by repairs or maintenance as it is not a requirement under Québec's Regulation respecting the quality of drinking water and it is up to the owners of these systems to report the advisories. We contacted the town to clarify the situation.

Ragueneau Administration confirmed that "the [BWA] is still in effect until we receive new orders." The necessary samples have been sent for testing and "results are expected this afternoon." If all goes well the advisory "will be lifted this afternoon or early tomorrow morning."

NOTE: The adivsory remains in effect Sunday, September 3rd.
