Délı̨nę is no longer under a boil water advisory.

Last week, the chief environmental health officer said residents should boil their water due to higher-than-normal turbidity, or very muddy water.

Public health has now removed the advisory and said no one fell ill due to the water.

However, health officials recommend residents and businesses flush their water supply.

Run all cold water faucets and drinking fountains for 1 minute before use;
Flush and clean all water-using equipment, such as soda fountains, coffee makers and icemaking machines, for at least 1 minute;
Change all point of use filters (tap mounted carbon filters, Brita filters, etc.);
Flush and clean all coffee machines;
Drain and flush all ice-making machines;
Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle;
Drain and refill hot water heaters; and
Drain and clean water-holding tanks
