On Saturday there was a water boiling advisory, for the approximately 12,000 residents of Prince Rupert, British Columbia.   

The reason for the 1 minute boiling of the drinking water, is because the city officials found high levels of parasites such as cryptosporidium and giardia.  These were found after testing water samples.   

These bacteria are especially harmful to those with lowered immune systems, such as young children, seniors, and those with a very low immune system.
