Professional organization recognizes success of Pauingassi First Nation water project

A non-profit engineering association has recognized the successful expansion and upgrade work at Pauingassi First Nation.

The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies Manitoba recently presented an award to engineering firm Tetra Tech for its work with the First Nation. Innovative construction project management processes helped expedite expansion and upgrades to the community's water treatment plant.

The project resulted in the lifting of a long-term drinking water advisory. The advisory had been in effect since September 2014.

Ensuring essential infrastructure

The Government of Canada works with First Nations to address health and safety needs, ensure proper facility operation and maintenance, to prevent short-term advisories from becoming long-term.

Ending a drinking water advisory is often complex, spanning multiple phases. Actions to resolve a water or wastewater issue can include:

Completion of a new water treatment system can take 3 to 4 years on average to complete. See the Life-cycle of a First Nation community infrastructure project.

The Government of Canada is working with First Nations to end long-term drinking water advisories (LT-DWAs). In the table below, "LT-DWA" refers to long-term drinking water advisories which have been in effect for more than 12 months. ISC provides funding for public water systems that serve five or more household service connections for residences that are occupied year round. ISC also provides funding for public water systems serving public facilities funded through ISC. These water systems are managed and operated by the band, a band-owned utility or qualified third party under contract.
