Cottage owners at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park do not have to boil their water.
Park Supervisor Erin Saunders says a temporary boil water advisory was in place for the campground as they prepared the seasonal water lines for the upcoming season, but the cottage subdivision was not affected.
"During that process we have to super chlorinate the lines and, until we get all our samples back, we have to put a boil water advisory on," explains Saunders. "That was just for the campgrounds that we're getting going, the cottage subdivision did not have a boil water advisory put on because their lines were not in any danger of being contaminated."
Saunder adds that the park's drinking water comes from groundwater wells that are treated by staff and tested for chlorination daily.
"Everyday we test for chlorination, and our permit with the Ministry of Environment requires that we do additional testing every month, so we treat our own water right here at the Park," says Saunders.
