Boil water advisory in Pontiac after breakdown in water treatment plant

By Devyn Harris, Ottawa Citizen, March 16, 2018

Pontiac in western Quebec is advising residents using the municipal aqueduct network to boil their water for at least a week and a half.

A critical piece of electronic equipment broke down and the municipal treatment plant could not operate without it, Pontiac said in a bulletin on Thursday.

As a result, water from the municipal system is untreated and must be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before consumption.
