Nunavut’s Department of Health issued a boil water advisory for the hamlet of Pond Inlet on July 28.

“This is a precautionary measure due to the potential for high turbidity (cloudy water) levels with ongoing repairs to the reservoir,” stated the GN press release.

All water for consumption, preparing infant formulas, preparing juices and ice cubes, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking or  brushing of teeth must be brought to a rolling boil in a kettle or pot for a minimum of one full minute during the boil water advisory.

It is not essential to boil water for anything that is not mentioned above.
