Published February 7 at 4:15 p.m.


The major water main break that occurred on Wednesday morning on Victoria Avenue has now been repaired, traffic was restored yesterday afternoon on Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road, and water accumulations are also under control.

The water supply on Victoria Avenue has been restored, and a boil water advisory has been issued for affected residents on Victoria, Sainte-Claire and Cartier Avenues.

Boiled or bottled water must be used when:

  • Drinking or preparing beverages,
  • Preparing baby bottles and food,
  • Washing and preparing foods to be eaten raw (fruits, vegetables, etc.),
  • Preparing foods that do not require prolonged cooking times,
  • Making ice cubes,
  • Brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth.

The water can be used when:

  • Washing dishes in hot water (make sure to wipe them thoroughly dry),
  • Doing the laundry,
  • Taking a shower or bath (make sure children do not swallow the water).


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
