Boil Water Advisory – Resolute Bay

The Department of Health is issuing a boil water advisory for the Hamlet of Resolute Bay.

This is a precautionary measure due to scheduled maintenance on the water system. The Boil Water Advisory will commence July 9 at 11:59 p.m. and remain in place until the work is complete and samples confirm that the water is safe.

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. The boil water advisory is only for the uses listed above. It is fine to wash dishes and shower.
