MARGAREE CENTRE, NS: ROUTINE WATER SAMPLES TEST POSITIVE FOR COLIFORM, SALMON POOL INN UNDER BWA, NS



This story is brought to you in part by Energy Systems & Designs


Nova Scotia Environment (NSE) listed the Salmon Pool Inn, in Margaree Centre, under a Boil Water Advisory (BWA) on August 24. The reasons are not listed for Public (Individual) Water Supplies. We contacted the Salmon Pool Inn for more information.

We spoke with Bob Short, the owner of the Inn, he said that "regular tests [that he] does every year, came back positive for coliform."

It was in a conversation with the operators of the restaurant on his property that Short realized that the Inn's water system was "not registered". He immediately contacted NSE about the situation. NSE informed Short that "this was nothing to worry about, there is enough time," to remedy the situation.

Short was also instructed to install an Ultraviolet Light disinfection system and a new cap for the well. The first samples were brought in for testing this morning, and the second sample will be tested early next week. As of now, there is no timeline for removing the advisory.
