Rusty/cloudy water

If you have problems with cloudy or rusty water, please contact the Division travaux publics at 450 698-3150. A qualified employee will inform you of the possible causes. Work may be under way in your area. Here are the most frequent types of work:

  • Flushing of the water system
  • Valve closing
  • Use of a fire hydrant near your home
  • Repair of a water main breakage

To correct the situation, simply run the cold water, preferably the bath, for at least 20 minutes or until the water runs clear again.

If the problem is not resolved, employees of the Division travaux publics will carry out an inspection.

IMPORTANT: Even if the colour of the water is not normal, it is safe to drink. If the water is unfit for consumption, a boil water advisory or drinking water avoidance advisory will be immediately issued to the public.
