Reminder: Boil Water Advisory – Pond Inlet

The Department of Health reminds all residents of Pond Inlet to boil their water before consumption until further notice.

This is a precautionary measure due to high turbidity (cloudy water) levels. 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 of teeth.

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

It is not necessary to boil water used for anything other than the above list.
