A do not consume (DNC) water notice has been in place at the Auberge du Lac Taureau since August 5.
A communications representative for the local health unit in Lanaudière told this reporter via email that abnormal water test results showed the presence of E.coli bacteria.
At this time all parties are still unsure what caused the concerning tests but a recent spate of bad weather might have resulted in some equipment problems.
The self-described 4 star log cabin is a 150 room inn/ resort located about a two hour drive north of Montreal.
David Sauvé, the marketing manager for Auberge du Lac Taureau said that they have been cooperating with the government authorities to ensure the problem is fixed quickly and their guests are kept safe.
"We have made some logistics for providing water for our guests including bottled water," he said, adding "We've put signs on the sinks, coffee machine and ice makers telling our guests not to drink the water."
He and the management at the inn have been working to resolve the issue. At this point, the basin for the establishment's water supply has been flushed and further tests have been conducted. They are still waiting for the results of the tests.
The health unity has said that the process typically takes anywhere from a few days to a week but would not commit to a precise duration at this time.
With the prime summer months upon them, and a reputation as an award winning hotel to uphold, a full investigation into the causes and a plan to ensure they won't happen again, should be forthcoming.
