A boil water advisory (BWA) for the city of Trois-Rivieres has just been lifted, according to city officials.
The advisory was put in place on September 26 for the residents of the Cardinal-Roy perimeter in the Cap-de-la-Madeleine area after a drop in pressure within the water system raised concerns of possible contamination.
Trois Riviere, which is located on the St. Lawrence about halfway between Quebec City and Montreal, said on their website that, "No apparent signs to date indicate the presence of bacteria or any other material."
"The goal (of the advisory) was to ensure that drinking water met the standards set by the Government of Québec and that no bacteria could have developed due to this drop in pressure," said Yvan Toutant, a communications representative with Trois-Rivières in an email to this reporter, " In total, 4 500 citizens were informed by our targeted telephony system, our website and by the local news media."
Toutant added that tests that have been carried out over the past 24 hours have yielded good results.
"Fortunately, no bacteria or coliforms have been detected," he said, "Allowing the City of Trois-Rivieres to lift the preventive boil today 27 September 2017."
