Boil-water Advisory Lifted After Villeray Water-main Break

The corner of Pie-IX Blvd. and Villeray St. looked more like a Venetian canal on Friday morning after a water main break flooded the east-end Montreal neighbourhood.More than a 100 residential buildings in the area were flooded when a huge 48-inch water main burst at 4:50 a.m.It took firefighters and city workers more than five hours to finally plug the broken main.Firefighters also asked Hydro-Québec to cut electricity to the area.No injuries were reported, but the city issued a boiled water advisory for parts of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough.It was lifted Saturday evening.Areas that were affected:"Until further notice, residents must boil their water for at least one minute before drinking it. Drinking water that has not been boiled can be used for personal hygiene or domestic use," the city of Montreal said in a statement."In the best case scenario, the advisory could be lifted early Saturday evening. However, a back-to-normal advisory will be issued as soon as the situation returns to normal."Tap water must be boiled for at least one minute before drinking it.The city said tap water that has not been boiled can be used for: Washing dishes with hot water. (Dry well); washing clothes, showering or bathing (make sure children do not swallow water while bathing, or wash them with a face cloth).The corner of Pie-IX Blvd. and Villeray will remain closed for the weekend. Traffic detours will be in effect.City of Montreal spokesperson Philippe Sabourin said the main that burst had been last inspected in 2012. It was not particularly old either, having been in operation since 1961.Sabourin said most water mains last nearly twice that long.For more information, please call 311 or visit .

Can I Drink Warm/hot Tap Water? Closed
This actually depends on how your tap water is warmed.If you have a personal water heater, which is connected to your tap with non-corrodable pipes, then there is essentially no difference. However, if the heating comes from a common source, then it would be very difficult to verify that the heater-tap connection does not contain any corrodable pipes. In this case, it might be better to not use the warm water for direct drinking, especially if the building is old.A 7-year old house should not have lead pipes installed, since the Canadian Plumbing Code has banned lead pipes since 1975. As such, I believe that your warm water is safe to drink. The National Plumbing Code allowed lead as an acceptable material for pipes until 1975 and in solder until 1986. All provinces and territories use the National Plumbing Code as a basis for their own regulations.Closed. This question is off-topic. It is not currently accepting answers.
