Human error was not to blame for the unprecedented filtration plant breakdown that left 1.3 million Montrealers without drinkable water for a few days last month, officials tell QMI Agency. A series of “unpredictable and simultaneous” incidents related to repair work caused sediment to pour into the Atwater filtration plant on May 22. The city said workers lowered water levels as part of a routine maintenance procedure.A pump inside the reservoir should have stopped automatically, but it failed to do so, dropping water levels below a critical threshold. Water supplied to the southern half of the island ran brown for 36 hours, delaying hospital surgeries and sending hundreds of thousands of people scrambling to load up on bottled water. At a news conference on Thursday, Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum said communication procedures will be ramped up.
