Boil water advisory issued for Baker Lake
Nunavut Health Department says it's a 'precautionary measure'
A boil water advisory has been issued for Baker Lake, Nunavut.
The Nunavut Department of Health said Monday the move is a "precautionary measure," as a result of high turbidity levels (cloudy water).
The department says water for consumption must be brought to a rolling boil for at least one full minute.
Water can be boiled in a pot, a kettle on a stove, or in a kettle that doesn't automatically shut off.
Water should be boiled if used for the following:
Preparing infant formula
Making juice and ice cubes
Washing fruit and vegetables
