Precautionary Boil Water Advisory for the Western Part of the Borough of LaSalle

LASALLE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 1, 2009) - The borough of LaSalle has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for part of its territory, Wednesday, July 1st at 6 p.m. All residents living in the western part of LaSalle must boil their tap water for at least one minute before they drink it. This notice concerns all neighbourhoods located in the perimeter formed by the following streets: Lapierre, Newman, Ghislaine, Upton, 80th Avenue, boul. LaSalle and St-Patrick.

Staff in charge of water quality at Ville de Montreal have found a slight anomaly in a sample on Wednesday, July 1st. The City is continuing its analysis, but doesn't want to place residents' health at any risk. We are therefore asking residents not to use the tap water for consumption, until further notice, unless it has first been boiled for at least one minute.

This precautionary boil water advisory will remain in effect until the City has received the water analysis results from the laboratory, Friday, July 3 at the soonest. In the meantime:

- There is no risk in using the water for taking showers, flushing the toilet, washing laundry or dishes, etc.

- Only water that residents want to drink or use for cooking or other consumption must be boiled at least one minute.

As soon as the City has confirmed that the water is perfectly suitable for drinking, another notice will be issued by the Borough of LaSalle. We are truly sorry for the inconveniences caused by this incident and thank LaSalle residents for their invaluable cooperation.
