Boil water advisory

Just received an e-mail and a phone call from the emergency alert system for Prince Rupert

Please note that due to high turbidity levels detected in the drinking water supply relating to the ongoing heavy rain event, a Water Quality Advisory has been issued for City of Prince Rupert water users. Until further notice, Northern Health recommends that children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems drink boiled water at this time. A water quality advisory is the lowest level notification, and is issued as a precautionary measure. At risk individuals should boil their water for 1 minute prior to consuming until the Advisory is lifted. Go to for additional information.
