The quality of groundwater can affect the overall quality of life in our Indigenous Communities. As of December 2014, there were approximately 170 water drinking advisories in 122 First Nations communities across Canada. These facts outline the scale of drinking water issues that First Nations Communities are currently experiencing.
Groundwater presents a unique challenge to First Nations Communities because it is not clear who is responsible for assessing the quality of drinking water from groundwater sources such as wells. This often leads to groundwater management issues for a lot of First Nations which can affect testing regulations as well as health and safety concerns.
At Cambium Aboriginal we understand the challenges that First Nations communities face when it comes to groundwater management. We have worked with First Nations Communities across Ontario to help test and develop water system compliance programs. Our professionals are experts in ground water testing and management with an extensive background in water supply and water system compliance programs. Our staff has the expertise and equipment to collect all types of drinking water samples as required by the Ontario Drinking Water Quality Standards. Cambium Aboriginal can evaluate your existing treatment equipment and water treatment systems to ensure it is compliant and provide professional recommendations.
We owe it to ourselves and our communities to ensure that our groundwater is safe from contaminants and toxins. Sustainable groundwater management is essential in protecting the safety of First Nations community members and the environment.
