A handful of streets in Ile-Bizard-Ste-Geneviève under a boil water advisory

The flooding that's affecting many riverside communities along the Riviere des Prairies has now led a boil water advisory in parts of the borough of Ile-Bizard-Ste-Geneviève.

The advisory affects residents living on Paquin, Roy, Monique, Jean-Yves and Sacré-Coeur Sts. in Ile-Bizard, as well as everyone on Ile-Mercier and trailer homes in Parc Wilson.

The borough says everyone affected has received notices — which all say water from the aqueduct needs to be boiled for 5 minutes before consuming.
