Press Release

03 November 2023

The Department of Health is reminding all residents of Whale Cove to continue to boil their water before consumption until further notice.

During a boil water advisory, all water for consumption must be brought to a rolling boil

for a minimum of one full minute. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

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.
  • 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.
