Boil water advisory issued for Igloolik
Precaution prompted by cloudy water
A boil water advisory has been issued for Igloolik until further notice, says Nunavut’s Department of Health.
The advisory is a precautionary measure because of high turbidity levels, which means the water is cloudy.
Water must be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute if it’s being used for the following:
- preparing infant formula
- preparing juice or ice cubes
- washing fruits and vegetables
- brushing teeth
Water can be boiled on the stove using a pot or kettle. It can also be boiled using an electric kettle that does not have an automatic shut-off.
