Project tracker

Projected lift date: December 2025


Tataskweyak Cree Nation on the shore of Split Lake, northeast of Thompson, Manitoba, is a remote community of 2,353 people.

It has 1 long-term drinking-water advisory affecting 361 homes and 5 community buildings:

  • a boil water advisory on the Tataskweyak Cree Public Water System (#6602) began on May 2017 and became long term on May 2018

Upgrades to the existing water treatment plant, as well as a source water assessment and water quality study have been completed.

Construction has begun for a long term solution involving sourcing the community's water from Assean Lake. This long term solution includes construction of a new water treatment plant at Assean Lake, conversion of the existing water treatment plant to a booster station, and the installation of the necessary piping to deliver the water to the community.

The Cree Nation, with support from Indigenous Services Canada, recently completed work to improve its wastewater treatment system.
