Construction of water treatment plant upgrade underway
Projected lift date: April 2025
Mathias Colomb Cree Nation in Manitoba is home to 2,223 people.
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory affecting 366 homes and 14 community buildings:
- A boil water advisory was set on the Townsite Public Water System in September 2020 and became long term in September 2021
Through the First Nation led design process, it was agreed that a water treatment plant upgrade and expansion would address the community's long-term water needs instead of replacing the existing lift station. This upgrade will also address concerns about potential wastewater overflows.
Construction of the upgrade and expansion, which includes a new pumping station, is underway. Extreme cold weather, the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain issues and site conditions have all delayed the project. Once the work is complete, the community should be able to lift the advisory.
