14 Year Boil Water Advisory Lifted

Posted on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 15:08 PM

Eleven long-term drinking water advisories have been lifted in Slate Falls First Nation. 

The Northwestern Ontario community recently saw the construction of a new water treatment plant bringing 14 years of boil water advisories to an end.   

The federal government kicked in $11.6 million into the new facility.

The new water system will provide clean and dependable drinking water to residents, a local elementary school, the local health centre and a nurse's residence.

Officials say this will also provide improved fire protection capacity for the community as well.
