Montreal issues boil water order

Posted: Updated:
MONTREAL -

Montreal officials said Thursday morning the water in most of the city is unsafe to drink.

A boil order has been issued through mid-day Thursday. They report ongoing work at the country's second largest water treatment facility has caused water levels to dip unusually low, allowing sediment into the water source.

There is concern for potential bacteria in the water. That affects 1.3 million people in Montreal, mostly south of the metropolitan.
