BALSAM LAKE, ON: COTTAGE COMMUNITY WATER SYSTEM UNDER BWA DUE TO ELECTRICAL ISSUE, ON
This story is brought to you in part by Multi-Use Trailer System
A small water system servicing a gated waterfront community on Balsam Lake in the Kawarthas has been under a boil water advisory (BWA) since August 12.
Kingsview is a Kaitlin Corporation development made up of 30 cottages with private boat slips.
According to a representative from the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit (HKPRD) problems arose when an electricity outage caused a drop in water pressure to the community's water supply system.
HKPRD officials are estimating the number affected by the advisory at 20-25 people currently.
They have assured this reporter that steps are being taken to remedy the issue.
These include restoring the power and water pressure, flushing the water system and increasing the chlorine disinfectant level.
After these steps have been taken two water samples 24-48 hours apart have to be tested to ensure that the drinking water is safe before the advisory is lifted.
At this time the HKPRD is still awaiting the results and cannot make an approximation of when the BWA will be rescinded.
