From CLCA – President Lyle Grobb
Kevin Bachewich sent me this information today regarding the water in the old campground.

Seasonal maintenance is still underway on the water system, but the water for the cabin area was turned on today. Information on our water advisory is posed below.

Access to businesses, cottages, and cabins is permitted, keeping in mind that you are responsible to follow the advice of public health authorities for physical distancing and hygiene. Please note that parking is limited to designated parking stalls for those businesses (within their leasehold space) or on the street in front of those businesses. Local services are limited. Businesses can be contacted directly to . Parks Canada is asking that everyone support the efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19.

All services and facilities such as washrooms, shower building, playground, all parking lots including the boat cove lot, and sheltered picnic areas(cook shacks) remain closed until at least May 31, 2020. Boating and fishing are prohibited in all park waters until further notice.

As per the province of Manitoba, all travelers, international and domestic, are required to quarantine (self-isolate) and self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon arriving in Manitoba. This includes crossing provincial boundaries by car. Stay inside, do not allow visitors, and limit contact with others.

Information will continue to be updated when available on our webpage at https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/mb/riding/info/urbain-townsite

WATER ADVISORY NOTICE – WATER SYSTEM SEASONAL MAINTENANCE IS IN PROCESS for the Clear Lake Cabin Area & East end Cottage Area. Will notify when maintenance is complete.

Until seasonal maintenance is completed:
Water is not proven safe for consumption.
Boil water protocols apply.
These are identified in the fact sheet Boil Water Advisory for Manitoba Water System Users.
The fact sheet is available on the Manitoba Website
(www.gov.mb.ca/drinkingwater) and is summarized below.

Due to seasonal maintenance, all water should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before it is used for:
Drinking and ice making
Beverage preparation, such as infant formula
Preparing food
Brushing teeth

It is not necessary to boil tap water used for other household purposes, such as laundry or washing dishes. Adults and older children that are able to avoid swallowing the water can wash, bathe, or shower. Young children should be sponge bathed. If boiling is not feasible, an alternate and safe supply of water should be used.

To avoid burn injuries from hot water, caution should be taken. Please keep young children away from boiled water, and place kettles and pots away from counter and stove edges.
