Reminder: Boil Water Advisory – Baker Lake, Rankin Inlet

July 11, 2019

The Department of Health reminds all residents of Baker Lake and Rankin 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. The boil water advisory is only for the uses listed above.
