Residents of several South Shore municipalities can drink their tap water again after the city of Châteauguay ended a boil-water advisory on Thursday.

Included in the boil advisory were the municipalities of Châteauguay, Mercier, Léry, Saint-Isidore, Saint-Urbain-Premier and Sainte-Martine.

The city said the issue stemmed from a technical problem at the Marchand drinking water production plant.

On Jan. 29, the city advised residents to boil water for at least one minute and to use boiled or bottled water for drinking, brushing their teeth, making ice cubes and handling food.
