Boil water advisory for portion of Greenfield Park
There's a boil water advisory in effect for Greenfield Park, but not everyone's affected.
The city of Longueuil has issued it for the area bordered by Soucy, Kimber and Taschereau.
It says lab results indicate E. Coli in the water.
Tap water should be boiled for at least a minute before consumption, but it can be used to wash the dishes, do the laundry, shower and bathe.
A statement from the city goes on to say "as for young children and infants, it is best to wash them with a facecloth to prevent them from swallowing the water and to make sure they do not bring wet objects to their mouths.
For more information on this advisory, go the the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques website at: http://www.mddelcc.gouv.qc.ca/eau/potable/avisebullition/faq.htm
