A boil-water advisory has been issued by Manitoba Health for parts of Winnipeg and north of the Perimeter Highway.
Areas south of Bishop Grandin Boulevard to the Perimeter, and east of the Red River to the Seine River are under the advisory, said Winnipeg Regional Health Authority spokeswoman Heidi Graham Tuesday night.
The advisory is a precautionary measure following sampling results showing bacteria, Graham said, and more tests later could show it is a sampling error.
The source of the bacteria is not yet known, she said, although she reiterated the positive test could be the result of a sampling error.
There will be further results released Wednesday afternoon, Graham said.
In the meantime, people can go to www.manitoba.ca/drinkingwater for further information.
