Issued Thursday, the advisory covers the area east of East of Boulevard Labrosse, West of Montée Mineault, south of Highway 50 except for the airport industrial park north of Highway 50 and north of the river.

In those areas, residents should boil water for at least a minute before they consume it or use it to brush their teeth until the advisory is lifted.
