Québec Advisory Map
In Québec, preventive BWAs were issued to one street in Baie Comeau due to an aqueduct break, a portion of one street
in Les Cèdres following water interruption for aqueduct maintenance/repair, and portions of 2 streets in Rouyn-Noranda,
also for aqueduct maintenance/repair. In Saint-Lazare, 2 previously issued preventive BWAs were lifted while 2 more were since
issued, both affecting several streets. Three Government-issued Do Not Consume advisories were issued: Saint-Janvier-de-Joly
(chalets des loisirs) municipal system, Le Resto Pizzéria (Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez) non-municipal system, and the
Sûreté du Québec (Dunham) non-municipal system. Government-issued advisories do not include issuance reasons.
A previously issued preventive BWA was lifted in the Montréal borough of Rivière-des-Prairies/Pointe-aux-Trembles (RDP/PAT).
British Columbia Advisory Map
In British Columbia, a BWN was issued by Interior Health to Chatter Creek Mountain Lodge due to unacceptable water quality
A Precautionary WQA has been expanded in Greater Vernon to apply to all users. In late October the Regional District of North Okanagan
(RDNO) recommended that a preventive WQA might be in order as a leak in the pipe carrying water to customers was discovered and the
UV treatment was temporarily shut off to allow for repairs to be completed. However, at that time, an official advisory was not issued.
Since then, according to RDNO:
"The Notice is in place because a leak was detected at the Duteau Creek UV Facility on October 31, so water is not being treated by
UV, but the water is still treated by the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant. This is the same process that was in place for years until
the UV Facility was turned on in February 2019. The Water Quality Advisory has been applied to a larger area because of a capital project
at the Kal Lake Pump House. Crews will be making the Kal Lake Pump House flood resistant, and in order to do so, they will turn off the
Kalamalka Lake water source. Therefore customers who regularly receive water from Kalamalka Lake will receive water from Duteau Creek
throughout the duration of this project, anticipated to be two months. Once the permanent fix to the leak at the UV Facility is implemented,
the WQA will be rescinded."
Saskatchewan Advisory Map
In Saskatchewan, a previously issued PDWA in Colonsay was lifted.
Manitoba Advisory Map

of the distribution system.
