ONTARIO CAMPGROUND BWA DUE TO FAULTY EQUIPMENT - ABOUT TO BE LIFTED

AA faulty chlorine drip is to blame for a boil water advisory at Riverbank Cottages and Trailer Park in Wilberforce, Ontario.
A communications officer for Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit was able to confirm via email that they issued a Boil Water Advisory to the campground last Friday (June 23).
Mike Neumann, the owner of the park, told this reporter that they just had a bad reading on the system and everything is working at 100% now.
"The chlorine drip was acting up and I got it replaced on the same day," Neumann said, "There's a rubber band on the chlorine drip and it wore out," adding, "I noticed it right away and now it's fixed."
The park has 15 trailer sites and nine cabins on site.
Due to the poor weather they've been having, there haven't been many guests at the park since the BWA has been issued, so only two guests, Neumann, his wife, Allison have been affected.
She confirmed that tests, which were sent to Lakefield Water Testing on Monday, have come back negative for both total coliform and E.Coli, so she's hoping the ban will be lifted in time for the long weekend.
According to the Health Unit, as of this afternoon they were still awaiting the results of those tests, so the Boil Water Advisory is still in place as of publishing.
