B.W.A reinstated in Déline

No illnesses have been reported in the community

(Mariah Caruso/CKLB)

Residents in Déline are encouraged to boil their water for a minimum of one minute after a Boil water advisory had been reinstated in the community, just days after being lifted.

The health advisory is considered precautionary and is due to high levels of turbidity (muddy water).

The Chief environmental health officer and the Délı̨nę Got’ı̨nę Government will continue to monitor the situation and provide notices of any changes, reads the advisory.

All water used for drinking, food prep, ice cubes and dental hygiene must be boiled. Although you may shower, bathe or wash with tap water.

Using a water bottle, water that has been distilled, processed through reverse osmosis or filtered is an appropriate substitute for residents unable to boil water.
