"We then issued an advisory telling the public not to use the water because of the contamination, " said Kuate, " Following that they contacted a treatment maintenance company and found out that there was something wrong the with the water treatment system."

The system was found to have defective equipment and was in need of repair, which was seen to immediately. "The water system was treated adequately and follow up samples taken on July 24th came back clean," said Kuate. While the advisory was in place, signage was posted in the establishment and bottled water was provided to the restaurant's customers.

According to Kuate, no-one became ill as a result of the contamination.

The Grand Hotel has been around for over a century. According to their website, it was once a popular stop on the stagecoach route between Toronto and Montreal.

Many businesses have set up shop in the building over the years but the new owner decided to rebrand it with the original name.
