(Updated June 26)

The Government of Nunavut has lifted a boil water advisory in Naujaat, health officials said June 26.

The GN first issued the advisory for the Kivalliq community June 21, calling it a “precautionary measure” due to operational issues at Naujaat’s water treatment plant.

That meant boiling water used for drinking, preparing infant formulas, juices and ice cubes, cooking and brushing teeth, the GN said in a June 21 release.

Naujaat residents could use tap water to wash their hands and bathe, through health officials suggested using soap and to avoid swallowing any water.

For more information, residents can call the Regional Environmental Health Officer in Rankin Inlet at 867-645-8071.
