Preventive boil water advisory in the Gatineau sector partially lifted
Gatineau, November 28, 2019. – The preventive boil water advisory in the Gatineau sector is now partially lifted. Water analysis and checks confirm that the tap water may be consumed in part of the affected perimeter.
Tap water may be consumed in all homes other than those on the following streets, in the Rivière-Blanche district: - Rue des Tulipes; - Rue des illets; - Rue des Pensées; - Rue des Dahlias; - Rue des Fleurs; - Rue des Jacinthes; - Rue des Marguerites; - Rue des Lavandes; - Rue des Violettes; and - Rue Hervé.
Before using the water, be sure to open the taps and let the water run for one minute or until it gets cold.
Follow the same procedure for water fountains, and discard any ice that was made with tap water while the preventive boil water advisory was in effect.
Gatineau will inform the public as soon as the water can once again be consumed within the affected perimeter.
