Shamattawa First Nation
Upgrade and expansion of water treatment plant underway
Projected lift date: November 2023
Located in northern Manitoba, Shamattawa First Nation is a remote community that is home to 1,425 on reserve and is only accessible by air or winter road.
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:
- A boil water advisory for the Shamattawa Public Water System was set in December 2018 and became long-term in December 2019
The advisory affects approximately 160 homes and 14 community buildings.
The community, with support from Indigenous Services Canada, is completing repairs to the water treatment plant and is working with the Circuit Rider Training Program to resolve operational issues.
A project is also underway to expand and upgrade the water treatment plant and water main distribution, which will enable the community to address its long-term water needs. Once the work is complete, the community should be able to lift the advisory.
