63B Public Water System
Projected lift date: December 2023
Mishkeegogamang First Nation is home to 1,136 people on reserve. The community has completed improvements to 4 water systems and is repairing, upgrading and expanding a 5th system with support from Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory in the community:
- a boil water advisory was issued on the 63B Public Water System in January 2021 and became long term in January 2022
Repairs are underway on the 63B Public Water System to make sure it can supply clean drinking water to 77 homes and 6 community buildings affected by the long-term drinking water advisory.
Local water operators are crucial to communities and needed to do daily operations and monitoring of water systems. The community’s water operators are being supported by the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation Centralized Water and Wastewater Hub, funded by ISC.
Consistent maintenance, operations and monitoring are required before the advisory can be lifted. An ISC Environmental Public Health Officer will recommend the lift once the treated water meets all drinking water guidelines and is safe to use. Mishkeegogamang First Nation’s Chief and Council will decide when to lift the advisory.
