Holiday Water - ON - Summer 2013

Last Update July 18, 2015

18 BWA in Prov. Parks - With a few exceptions, no reporting on private facilities in Ontario

If you're heading for a provincial park in Ontario the chances are excellent that you will be able to find out ahead of time if the park water is potable where you are going. Ontario Parks does an excellent job of monitoring and posting Boil Water Advisories along with vacancies and beach information, on its website.

You're on your own however when it comes to private campgrounds, Rv parks, inns, lodges and camps. They come under Small Drinking Water Systems (SDWS) in Ontario and although they are monitored by Regional Health Authorities, advisories are not usually reported to the public since 2007. Operators will no doubt have posted notices if he water is not potable but you won't know ahead of time, unless they are in the Eastern Ontario or Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Pine Ridge District Health Units areas; these two health units are the only ones as far as we can tell that publish advisories in SDWS.
