Boil Water Advisory Lifted For the Community of Lutselk’e


YELLOWKNIFE (January 19, 2018) - The Chief Environmental Health Officer is advising all residents in Lutselk’e that the precautionary boil water advisory has been lifted.

The Boil Water Advisory was in effect due to possible delivery of unchlorinated water to residents in the community.

On January 16, 2018, water samples were taken in Lutselk’e. The water supply is now receiving adequate chlorination and bacterial water samples taken show no presence of bacteria in the treated water.

It is still recommended that all water tanks be cleaned annually. Directions for cleaning water tanks can be found at

Normal use of water may resume in the community.
