The Department of Health is reminding residents of Iglulik, Whale Cove, and Pond
Inlet to boil their water before consumption until further notice.

This is a precautionary measure due to cloudy water, also known as turbidity.

During a boil water advisory, all water for consumption must be brought to a rolling boil
for a minimum of one full minute. It is essential that all water be boiled for the following
uses: drinking; preparing infant formulas; preparing juices and ice cubes; washing fruits and vegetables; cooking; or brushing teeth.

Water can be boiled either in a pot or kettle or an electric kettle without an
automatic shut-off.
