Water reduction notice to users of the water system

Work required at the water treatment plant from April 8 to 12 creates a risk of low-flow wastewater discharge into the Gatineau River despite the mitigation measures that will be put in place to limit any discharge.

This work is necessary to replace some control panels to keep our plants operating. Since this is work related to control panels, system shutdown is necessary to allow the contractor to proceed safely.

Although the work will be performed at intervals that minimize the risk of rejection, the time window available for the team to complete it is variable and limited.

 

Residents' collaboration

In order to minimize the effects of potential spills as much as possible, we ask for the cooperation of residents by avoiding maximum water use between April 8 and 12, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The more water consumption is reduced, the less likely we are to discharge into the Gatineau River.
