Boil Water Advisory – Baker Lake


The Department of Health is issuing a boil water advisory for the Hamlet of Baker Lake.

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. The boil water advisory is only for the uses listed above.
