August 3 and 4 – Possible water discolouration due to work by the Ville de Montréal
The Ville de Montréal will be conducting work on the water supply system on August 3 and 4 in the Hymus Boulevard and Stillview Avenue area, which will result in interruptions to the drinking water supply. The addresses involved have been notified.
This work could cause water discolouration in several areas of the city.
This discolouration results from pressure fluctuations in the drinking water supply system that cause mineral particles that are naturally stuck to the walls of the pipe to become detached. It is recommended to let the water run for a few minutes (about 10 to 15 minutes) until it is clear again before using it. The water remains drinkable unless specified otherwise.
Traffic will be maintained during the work.
Thank you for your understanding.
