The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has issued an extensive boil water advisory early Monday after a major water main break.

The water main break in the area, located off the western tip of the Island of Montreal, has since been contained.

Earlier in the day, residents had to limit their consumption of drinking water to “ensure a minimum supply for essential needs.”
