Drinking Water Safety

Updated February 1, 2018

If you have questions regarding the safety of your drinking water here on the Kennisis Lakes or want information regarding what to do if there is a problem identified by a water quality test at your cottage please refer to the following PDF documents: 

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Heath Unit has a Yellow Book for well water safety,  availabe for free from their office 

Since Walkerton, there is little new documentation on private water systems (less than 5 units) however we have located some other government documents that you may find helpful:

Cottage Country- Environmental Manual for Cottagers

Information on the use of Home Water Treatment Devices

Small Water Supply Systems Guidebook Oct 17 2013

Section 4 of thethe 'full version' of the Kennisis Lake Plan contains a comprehensive overview of water quality issues for the Kennisis watershed.
