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

LASALLE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - The Borough of LaSalle advises all residents living in the western part of LaSalle that they 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: St. Patrick, Lapierre, Newman, Radisson, d'Upton, 80e Avenue and boulevard LaSalle.

Staff in charge of water quality at Ville de Montréal have found an anomaly in a sample on Thursday, May 26. 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 boil water advisory will remain in effect until the City has received the water analysis results from the laboratory, Monday, May 30 at the soonest. In the meantime:

  • There is no risk in using the water for washing hands, taking showers, getting washed, washing laundry or dishes, etc.

  • Only water that residents want to drink, use for cooking or to wash their teeth 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.
