Five-day preventive boil water advisory coming up for Hull area

By the Ottawa Citizen, October 10, 2018

A preventive boil water advisory will begin for about 70,000 residents in Gatineau’s Hull district Saturday, Oct. 20, as the city begins the latest stage of its $68-million water system upgrade.

The advisory will last a minimum of five days, the city said in a news release. Hull’s Plateau district will be unaffected.

Residents are asked to boil their water for one minute before consuming it. Affected residents are also being asked asked to reduce water use while the work is underway.

Affected residents may notice some discoloration (yellowish or brownish) in their water while the work is underway.

Work on the modernization of the Hull filtration plant began in the spring of 2017 and is expected to be completed next summer.
