Throughout the 2018 boating season, potable water and flush toilets will not be available at Weaver Point Campground in Lake Chelan National Recreation Area. Outhouses will be open for use at the campground. Winter storms knocked down poles and damaged the Chelan PUD lines which provide power to the area. The water system depends on electricity to run the pumps.
Per Washington State Department of Health at www.doh.wa.gov:
Purifying by boiling
If your tap water is unsafe, boiling is the best method to kill disease-causing organisms.
If tap water is unavailable, the following may be considered as potential water sources. Water taken from these sources should be boiled before drinking.
Rivers and streams
Caution: Many chemical pollutants will not be removed by boiling.
Cloudy water should be filtered before boiling. Filter cloudy water using coffee filters, paper towels, cheesecloth or a cotton plug in a funnel.
Bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one full minute.
Let the water cool before drinking.
Add two drops of household bleach per gallon to maintain water quality while in storage.
