The City of Montreal has lifted a 48-hour boil water advisory for residents in the Mercier-Est area of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and parts of Anjou.

Normal use of drinking water can begin again, according to a news release sent Saturday by the city.

The advisory was put in place on July 2, due to work being done to repair a nearby broken water main, according to the city.
