Gull Bay (Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek)
New water treatment plant complete
Projected lift date: Under discussion with the First Nation
Gull Bay First Nation (Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek) in Ontario is home to 393 people on reserve. The First Nation has completed the construction of a new water treatment facility with funding from Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:
- a boil water advisory for the Gull Bay Public Water System was set in April 2009 and became long-term in April 2010
The new water treatment plant is expected to enable the community to lift the drinking water advisory and ensure access to safe drinking water in 97 residential homes and 8 community buildings. The environmental public health officer has provided chief and council with a recommendation to lift the long-term drinking water advisory.
Through supports provided by the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) Centralized Water and Wastewater Operations Hub, funded by ISC, the community has strengthened operations. The community continues to have access to additional supports provided by OFNTSC.
