A boil-water advisory is in place for Montebello, Que., until further notice.

People in the western Quebec municipality, roughly halfway between Gatineau and Montreal, are asked to boil water for five minutes before consuming it.

The municipality said in an online post it has to switch back to its old chlorination system while it finishes its new water-filtration system.
