Due to cloudy water, also known as turbidity, it’s recommended that community members in Baker Lake boil their water for at least a full minute if it’s intended for consumption.

That would include water use such as drinking, preparing infant formulas, preparing juices and ice cubes, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking and brushing teeth.

The Department of Health, which issued the advisory on Tuesday afternoon, stated that updates will be provided to the community when available.
