City Centre of Rimouski: the boil water advisory is lifted
The citizens and customers of the city centre of Rimouski can now drink water from the water system without concern. The boil water advisory that was in effect since Wednesday evening in this sector due to the presence of the bacterium E. coli, is lifted.
