More than 2,000 homes in Aylmer were placed under a tap water advisory Tuesday after workers detected the smell of heavy oil in the water supply.

Jean Boileau, director of communications for the City of Gatineau, said the water in the affected area is now being tested to determine if it presents a health danger.

“As a preventive measure, we went ahead with the water advisory,” said Boileau. “Presently, we’re on stand-by, waiting for tests from the lab to see if we’re going to be able to lift the advisory.”
