A 48-hour boil water advisory was issued for the town of Ste-Julie on Montreal’s South Shore Friday night.

The advisory was launched after a major supper-time breakdown caused a drop in water pressure, according to mayor Suzanne Roy.

Though the pressure didn’t drop for more than the standard 15 minutes before issuing a boil water advisory, the mayor initiated it anyways as a preventative measure.

“There is no need to worry in any way at this time,” Roy told Radio-Canada Saturday morning. “There are no health risks or other issues. It was really a precautionary advisory.”

More than 10,000 automated calls were made to warn Ste-Julie residents she said. The town also used electronic signs, its website and text message alerts.

“I think we probably reached everyone,” Roy said.
