A boil water advisory is in effect in Hay River, Enterprise, Kakisa, and the K’atl’Odeeche Reserve.

The advisory is a result of higher than normal turbidity — muddy water, according to a press release issued Wednesday morning.

There have been no illnesses associated with drinking water and the advisory is precautionary.

The South Slave was previously under a boil water advisory in June and early July.
