Frequent short term water problems new norm for many First Nations – APTN News

While the Liberal government says progress has been made on a campaign pledge to end long-term drinking water advisories in First Nations communities, some of those communities say they’ve since lost count of how many times they’ve been under short-term advisories.

It’s also unclear how water-related statistics are even collected by the federal government.

The feds say that as of January, 78 long-term drinking water advisories have been lifted since November 2015.

The latest First Nation community to have its long-term drinking water advisory lifted is Weenusk First Nation in Ontario as of late last year.

However, since mid-January, the government says there are 25 short-term drinking water advisories in place.

Short-term refers to a temporary water quality issue on a specific water system.

A long-term drinking water advisory refers to those that have been in place for more than a year.
