Asvisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by TransNorth-Biomass Stoves

A mini putt course in Martintown, Ontario has been under a boil water advisory since early summer.

Straight Shooter Mini-Putt, which also doubles as an ice cream parlour was put on advisory in July when tests showed that they had higher than acceptable bacteriological levels in their water supply.

According to a representative from Eastern Ontario Health, "Repeated changes in chlorine levels have so far been unsatisfactory."

"At this point in time, they're using bottled water," said Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health for Eastern Ontario Health Unit.

As for when the advisory will be lifted, Dr. Roumeliotis said, "It's in their corner at this point. We always work with operators to see what they can do to rectify the problem."

At this point in time, the course operators will retest the water until they've come up with the right solution.

"In many situations (the operators) are anxious to remove it and they act on it," said Dr. Roumeliotis, "We're satisfied they're not using the non-potable water."

Calls placed to Straight Shooter Mini-Putt went unreturned.
