The City of Montreal announced a boil-water advisory in the area of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and part of Anjou.

The news came late Thursday evening but did not specify why the advisory had been put into effect nor the details of the water contamination found.

According to CTV News, a 311 operator said there had been a break in a sewage pipe located near Ave. Georges-V to the east, Sherbrooke to the south and De Boucherville St. to the west. The pipe is now being repaired but residents in the area are asked to take precautions and boil tap water for a full minute or to use bottled water.

For more information, residents should visit ville.montreal.qc.ca/eaudemontreal or call 311.

The city has provided an online map online that shows which areas have been affected.
