Nibinamik First Nation
Construction of expansion and upgrades to water treatment system has begun
Projected lift date: December 2023
Nibinamik First Nation in Ontario is home to 78 people on reserve. The community is expanding and upgrading its water treatment system to meet current and future safe drinking water needs, with funding from Indigenous Services Canada.
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:
- a boil water advisory for the Nibinamik Public Water System was set in February 2013 and became long-term in February 2014
Construction of water treatment system upgrades and expansion started after the First Nation made the decision to delay construction for 1 year in part due to COVID-19 related precautions. This also delayed the lifting of the long-term drinking water advisory. The construction phase is now projected to be completed by December 2023.
