A long standing boil water advisory (BWA) has been lifted at Grand Valley Campgrounds in Brandon, Manitoba.
A spokesperson for the province confirmed in an email that the advisory was issued in 2013 due to elevated bacteria in the drinking water.
They went on to write that, "Routine bacteriological monitoring over the 2017 operating period indicates the water is safe for consumption."
Husband and wife, Jordan and Catherine Ross took over the lease on the campgrounds, which are located on a provincial park, in 2015 and have been working to bring it back up to code since.
"The well wasn't looked after properly in the past years, so we took some steps and worked with the drinking water authority to get (the BWA) lifted," said Jordan Ross, "This summer we were doing monthly tests that come out positive, so we were able to lift it recently.
The camp has 22 electrical sites and another 10 un-serviced sites on its grounds.
According to Ross, it is a seasonal camp with shallow pipes, so as soon as it gets cold, they are going to have to drain the system.
That being said, they plan on keeping the campground open as long as the weather permits.
