14 Year Old BWA Removed in Slate Falls Nation

Slate Falls Nation is excited to announce that the BWA is finally lifted and they can now safely drink water directly from the taps as of February 5, 2018. 

Chief Lorraine Crane said "Today is a big day to make changes to our lifestyle and we are very excited to finally be able to drink water right from the tap.   The community is looking forward to not having to purchase water or boil the water, and after 14 years of the BWA, it will be a positive adjustment and a change to our lifestyle.  We would like to take this opportunity  to thank the community for their patience, and the support of elders and leadership throughout this project.”

Windigo First Nations Council is proud of this accomplishment and how much effort and patience the community has endured to see this important milestone being completed.
