Boil-water advisory still in place in Brownsburg-Chatham

A boil-water advisory issued on April 8 remained in effect on April 9, 2019. The town of Brownsburg-Chatham issued a boil-water advisory for all users of the municipal water system in Brownsburg, St-Philippe and Montée La Branche on April 8.

Public Works Director Sonja Lauzon said a power failure at the water treatment plant on Sunday night could have led to water entering the system after not being properly treated. The advisory was issued as a precautionary measure and would likely remain in effect for at least 48 hours.

Lauzon explained that once tested samples show that the water is consistently meeting safety regulations, the boil water advisory would be lifted.

Until further notice, municipal water system users in the Brownsburg, St-Philippe, and Montée La Branche areas of Brownsburg-Chatham should boil the water for at least one minute before use.

    Google “Drinkable Air” for a clean water source anywhere there is an outlet. Far cheaper than bottled water. In the future extremely expensive residential water and sewer infrastructure will not be needed. Your own systems are FAR less expensive and will not supply muddy/rusty or over/under chlorinated water or contribute to all the massive sewage spills. New homes include huge services connection costs. Also not needed. Google “Oppose Bracebridge Sewers” for details.
