The City of Longueuil has fully lifted its boil water advisory that was issued earlier this week.

The city said in a notice at 2 p.m. that the results of water samples came in and that the water is safe for consumption.

The boil water advisory was issued due to "a drop in water pressure caused by work on the drinking water network."

What to do once a boil water advisory is lifted? 

Once a boil water advisory is lifted, the water is considered safe to drink.

Anyone wanting to take precautions can do the following:

  • Open all taps and let the water run for a few minutes;
  • Empty, wash and disinfect ice machines;
  • Flush out garden hoses and outdoor taps;
  • If you have a home water treatment device, follow the manufacturer's recommendations. (It is not necessary to drain a hot water tank.) Top Stories

Some birds may use 'mental time travel,' study finds

Real quick — what did you have for lunch yesterday? Were you with anyone? Where were you? Can you picture the scene? The ability to remember things that happened to you in the past, especially to go back and recall little incidental details, is a hallmark of what psychologists call episodic memory — and new research indicates that it’s an ability humans may share with birds called Eurasian jays.
