The Department of Health is reminding all residents of Pond Inlet to boil their water before consumption until further notice.
This is a precautionary measure due cloudy water from high turbidity levels.
All water to be consumed must be brought to a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute.
It is essential that all water be boiled for the following uses:
• preparing infant formulas
• preparing juices and ice cubes
• washing fruits and vegetables
• brushing of teeth
Water can be boiled either in a pot or kettle on a stove or an electric kettle without an automatic shut-off, according to the Department of Health.
