Advisory of the Day
SUTTON, QC: BWA ABOUT TO BE LIFTED, QC
This story is brought to you in part by Dagua
On February 7th 2017, the town of Sutton, Quebec with it's most famous attraction being the Mont-Sutton Ski resort, issued a boil water advisory for only a small portion of it's population because of it's secondary distribution line failure.
The residents of the following neighbourhoods need to boil water for 1 minute before human consumption or cooking as a pre-emptive security measure:
Chemin Boulanger (from 205 to 526)
Place des Verrieres
We spoke to the city's Main Water Technician, Mr. Yannick Denis who told us: "We have two distribution lines; the main one that goes right thru the mountain and the secondary 10-inch pipe that feeds a smaller part of the town. The 10-inch pipe broke mainly because of weight since it's buried very deep."
As for the lifting of the boiling water advisory, the town's website cites that repairs were done on Friday February 10th and lab results are expected by today 4pm to confirm everything is back to normal before lifting the advisory. Mr. Denis told us: "I sent two tests, I got good negative results for contaminants yesterday, the second set of results will be in later today, we expect to lift the advisory by the end of the day or tomorrow."
As of 4pm local time Thursday, the town of Sutton informed us that the BWA is still effective and lab results should confirm the advisory lift by Friday afternoon.
