NWT issues boil-water advisory for Sachs Harbour


The NWT’s chief environmental health officer is advising all residents in Sachs Harbour to boil their drinking water for at least one minute.

In a news release on Wednesday night, the NWT government said the precautionary advisory is due to higher-than-normal turbidity in the hamlet’s drinking water. 

The territorial government issued the public health advisory just hours after issuing a similar boil-water advisory for Behchokǫ̀
