    • You are expected to bring your own drinking water year-round.  In winter, no water is available.  In summer, water from pumps or taps in the area may be used ONLY for purposes like putting out a campfire. Government of Alberta regulations require that water from pumps/taps like those in the area NOT be used for drinking, cooking or washing (including brushing teeth and washing dishes).
