While the majority of the boil-water notices issued in Algonquin Park this summer have been dropped this week, one new notice has cropped up today.

Park authorities have announced that due to recent repairs, the Highway 60 Trailer Sanitation Station water system is currently under a boil water advisory.

This means that water used for drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, reconstituting fruit juice and infant formula, and washing fruits, vegetables, and dishes should be brought to a rolling boil it for at least one minute before it is used.

Alternatively, you may prefer to use commercially bottled water or access water at other campgrounds within Algonquin Provincial Park.

Boiling water for at least one full minute will kill any harmful microorganisms that may be present in the water.

Earlier this week, around four notices that had been in place for the last few weeks were ended.
