Borough of Lachine
You should boil your water if you're planning to drink it, prepare foods, give to your pets or babies, or brush your teeth, the city says.
You don't need to boil the water if you're simply washing your hands, washing your dishes, taking a shower, or doing your laundry.
Once the advisory is lifted, residents are asked to run their taps for a few minutes before drinking.
