Montebello taps province to end water problems

By CBC News Ottawa, August 17, 2018

Montebello, Que., a town beset by a series of boil-water advisories in recent years, has finally replaced its aging water treatment plant with a new state-of-the-art facility.

"The [old] plant had a lot of problems. There were a lot of interruptions," Alexandre Icarà, the MNA for Papineau, said in French.

The advisories became so commonplace the province decided to step in to help replace the plant, forking over roughly $2.5 million of the $3.8-million construction cost, Icarà ​said.
