I just received word from the park that the water testing is complete and there is no longer a boil water advisory in place.
Also, please follow the new Manitoba Health restrictions. No visiting inside or outside with anyone other than members of your primary household. Cookshack: – Only one household at a time in the cookshack.
Out of province arrivals must self-isolate for 14 days.
The system is pressured to the Clear Lake Cabin area so the water is on. We advise that people boil water for the next couple of days until we get testing results back to ensure safe drinking water which is a standard practice.
The current plan is to have washrooms 2, 3, 5 and 7 open for the weekend.

Townsite Parking Lot
The contractors are making every effort to complete the paving components of the work as quickly as possible. Rain experienced last week has slowed the landscaping portion of the project, but with favourable weather over the coming days it is anticipated that work will be completed within the next week or so.
Construction work on Highway 10 and townsite roads
Parks Canada would like to advise travellers that starting June 24, 2020, construction work will take place on Highway 10 through Riding Mountain National Park, from kilometre 17 to 25 (anticipated June 26-June28) ,along with the following roads in the townsite of Wasagaming:
• Ta-Wa-Pit Drive (from Highway 10 to Balsam Street) – June 25*
• Columbine Street (from Highway 10 to Wasagaming Drive) –June 29*
• Wasagaming Drive (from Highway 10 to Mooswa Drive) – June 30*
A micro sealant is being applied to the recently paved road to prolong the life of the asphalt – the work is expected to take a total of five days, weather depending. This application is part of a larger federal infrastructure road renewal project which will result in improved, safer travelling experience for visitors.
Public safety is a priority for Parks Canada. Visitors travelling through the park should be prepared for single-lane alternating traffic, speed reductions to 60 km/hour in the construction zone with traffic control personnel on site, and occasional delays of up to 15 minutes. Within the townsite, we ask visitors to follow construction signs and traffic controllers at the scene and to expect limited access to some roads while the application is completed. Hours of work are sunrise to sunset.
Parks Canada is completing this important infrastructure work to ensure safe, high-quality experiences for visitors by improving heritage, visitor, waterway, and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas.
• Parks Canada is following advice from public health experts and implementing measures to support Canada’s efforts to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce the risks to Canadians, visitors, Parks Canada team members, and contractors working at our places.
• Parks Canada’s construction projects are considered part of the Agency’s critical services to the public.
