Boil Water Advisory for Rankin Inlet

The Department of Health is issuing a community-wide boil water advisory for the Hamlet of Rankin Inlet, due to work to replace the utilidor in the Johnson Cove area.

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.
  • 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. Updates will be provided to the community when available.
