City releases results of water tests at Friday afternoon press conference
The City of Iqaluit has confirmed that its water supply has been contaminated by fuel.
Test results were announced at a Friday afternoon press conference held by Mayor Kenny Bell, senior administrative officer Amy Elgersma and Nunavut’s chief public health officer, Dr. Michael Patterson.
Elgersma reported the results of water tests conducted in Iqaluit earlier this week. Residents had complained their tap water smelling like fuel since Oct. 2.
More to come.
