Bell Tower Business People

Precautionary Measures during a Boil Water Advisory

There is a precautionary boil water advisory for the City of Winnipeg. Please take these precautionary measures immediately.


For additional information on water use go to

Boil Water Advisory Fact Sheets:

Preparing food and beverages

Use boiled water or bottled water to:

  • drink
  • wash all fruits and vegetables,
  • prepare drinks (e.g., coffee, tea, juices)
  • wash food preparation surfaces

Preparing baby formula

  • Prepare baby formula from powder or concentrate with boiled or bottled water, or use ready-to-use baby formula.
  • Wash and sterilize bottles and nipples before use.
  • If you cannot sterilize bottles, try to use single-serve, ready-to-feed bottles.


  • Do not use ice made with tap water from ice trays, ice dispensers, or ice makers.
  • Use ice made with boiled or bottled water.

To boil water

  • Fill a pot with water from the cold water tap.
  • Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
  • Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute.
  • Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
  • Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.

Note: Kettles with an automatic shutoff feature may not boil the water for one full minute.

Take care to avoid burn injuries from hot water:

  • Keep young children away from boiling water.
  • Place kettles and pots away from counter and stove edges when in use.

Water filters

Most kitchen and other household water filters typically do not remove bacteria or viruses. Boil tap water even if it is filtered.

Washing hands

You can use tap water for washing hands. Follow normal precautions:

  • rub all parts of the hand with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Brushing teeth

  • Use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water to brush teeth or to clean dentures and other dental appliances (e.g, retainers).

Bathing and showering

  • Adults and older children that are able to avoid swallowing the water can wash, bathe, or shower using tap water.
  • Young children should be sponge bathed, using water that has been boiled and cooled to a safe temperature. If boiling is not feasible, an alternate and safe supply of water should be used (e.g., bottled water).

Other household purposes

It is not necessary to boil tap water for other household purposes (e.g., laundry, washing dishes, flushing toilets).


It is a good idea to give them boiled water that has been cooled or bottled water.
