(Updated on 9th of October 2019)
Well water should be avoided near Kurjenrahka National Park, in Kuhankuono hiking trail network. Fecal E.coli bacteria was found in samples taken from the well water in Lakjärvi. Therefore, the water can only be used when boiled. Coliformic bacteria was also found from e.g. Soikeroinen hut's well and Kangasmiekka-route's wells in Käärmeenlähde and hunting hut. Safe drinking water can be found from Rantapiha's sauna and Kurjenpesä Nature Information Hut.
