Wasa Lake safe for swimming againPosted: August 3, 2012
Water samples Interior Health collected from the Provincial Park’s public beaches on Wasa Lake show the water is now satisfactory and within the guidelines for Recreational Water Quality.
The public beaches are safe for swimming. Interior Health will continue to test the water at these public beaches throughout the summer.
Residents with private beaches may wish to have their beach water tested at a certified private lab. Residents with private drinking water wells should have their water tested by an approved water testing lab to ensure it’s safe to drink. When lake levels return to seasonable normal Interior Health will be testing the Wasa Lake aquifer to determine water quality. This information will be shared with residents.
The Regional District of East Kootenay will provide residents with a list of certified private labs as well as information on how to disinfect private wells, “Water Well Disinfection: Using the Simple Chlorification Method.” These materials are also available online:
