Water unsafe in Lynnwood mobile home park in Edwards

originally posted on June 24, 2016


Ottawa Public Health has issued a do-not-drink advisory for residents of the Lynnwood mobile home park in Edwards, southeast of Ottawa.

City of Ottawa water services are not impacted by the advisory, public health says.

Residents within the park are advised to use an alternative water source for all consumption purposes. Boiling tap water will not suffice while the do-not-drink advisory is in effect, public health says.

“Signs must be posted at any public water taps and water fountains advising not to consume the water,” the health body says in a press release.

The advisory will end once Ottawa Public Health is “satisfied that water quality meets drinking water guidelines and tap water is deemed to be safe.”
