Emergency Water Shut Down in Happy Valley and Lower Iqaluit
Due to an emergency repair to the water infrastructure after a pipe burst this morning, there is a water shut down Lower Iqaluit and Happy Valley effective immediately. This is expected to last until 5 p.m. on June 8, 2021.
The City of Iqaluit is issuing a boil water advisory for these residents who experience water loss.
This is a precautionary measure due to a break in the water line during a repair to our water infrastructure.
The City recommends that all water used for consumption and dental hygiene is brought to a rolling boil for a minimum of one full minute. Water can boiled in a pot over the stove, allowed to cool and stored in a covered container or refrigerated for later use.
The City of Iqaluit will release a Public Service Announcement when the boil water advisory is lifted.
