Lac La Croix
Repairs complete; Long-term solution identified
Projected lift date: December 2023
Lac La Croix First Nation in Ontario is home to 315 people on reserve.
There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:
- a boil water advisory has been in effect on the Lac La Croix Public Water System since January 2022 and became long term in January 2023
The advisory affects 81 homes and 11 community buildings.
The community completed interim repairs to the water treatment plant. However, an advisory remains in place due to low chlorine levels in the distribution system. The Pwi-Di-Goo-Zing Ne-Yaa-Zhing Advisory Services Water and Wastewater Hub, funded by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and the Giishkaandag'Ikwe Health Services Environmental Public Health Officer continue to provide on-the-ground support to the local water operator to address the issue.
A feasibility study to address the long-term drinking water needs of the community is complete and recommends an upgrade to the water treatment plant. ISC is providing funding to Lac La Croix First Nation to proceed with the design phase of their water treatment plant upgrade project.
