By CBC News Ottawa, March 18, 2018

A boil-water advisory has been issued for Maniwaki, Que., after a watermain broke early Sunday morning.

Water in the west Quebec municipality was temporarily shut off overnight until around 6 a.m., when the public works department turned it back on.

A water quality analysis is currently underway.

Maniwaki Mayor Francis Fortin told Radio-Canada cold temperatures may have caused the watermain to burst.

She urged the town's 3,000 residents to boil their water for at least 15 minutes before consuming it.
