Québec Advisory Map
In Québec, in the Village of Oka, 2 aqueduct breaks have occurred necessitating water service interruption. At this
time no mention has been made whether a drinking water advisory (DWA) will be issued when service is restored. In Rouyn-Noranda,
3 partial BWAs were issued two days ago and yesterday all 3 were rescinded. A previously issued BWA in Mirabel has been lifted.
A BWA was issued to one sector in the municipality of Saint-Cyprien-de-Napierville due to preventive maintenance at the filtration
plant. Water service interruption is occurring today in a portion of the south shore municipality of Sainte-Catherine due to
aqueduct maintenance. At this time there is no mention whether a DWA will be issued when water is restored. Sainte-Catherine is one
of the municipalities currently experiencing issues with their water smelling and tasting of chlorine. For related details,
