Gatineau, September 6, 2018. – Gatineau is issuing a preventive boil water advisory for approximatively 14,000 residences in the Gatineau sector. This preventive boil water advisory is being issued due to abnormal results obtained from a routine sampling.

The preventive boil water advisory is contained in the following area:
- East of boulevard Labrosse;
- West of the montée Mineault;

- North of the rivière des Outaouais.
