Caribou/Munroes Island

2014 Season - June 13 to Oct. 13

Visitor Notices: Campers & picnickers should bring their own supply of water for drinking and cooking. Water at the park may, however, be used for washing.
Recent testing has shown that the park’s potable water supply contains Uranium slightly above the maximum allowable concentration as recommended by Health Canada. The recommended limit is of 0.02 mg/L is based on drinking 1.5 litres per day for 70 years.
In the short term, levels moderately exceeding the guidelines are unlikely to have an effect on health. Testing is ongoing and we are working towards a resolution. Additional information on uranium and its health effects, and water testing results is available at the park admin building.
