City closing two water treatment plants

The city is going to close two water treatment plants on the west end of the island, and connect Dorval and Lachine to more efficient plants at a cost of $235 million, but with an eye on eventual savings from the change.

La Presse says the city is running out of cash to fix the water supply system and this is why the Plante administration had to hike the water tax.

Metro has a complicated map of water main repairs by year and borough.
