New water line planned for Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation

A partnership between the governments of Canada and Alberta and the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation has announced plans for a new regional water line and water infrastructure.

The project will connect the Nation to the West Inter Lake District regional water supply system, in addition to constructing a potable water supply line, pumphouse and reservoir for treated water.

The government of Canada plans to invest approximately CA$10m to support the completion of the project as part of the Canada's commitment of CA$1.8bn over five years for water and wastewater.

The Alberta government is investing CA$7.15m to complete the Alexis Nakota Sioux water tie-in project connecting the regional water system to the reserve. This project is part of Alberta's CA$100m commitment over four years to ensure Alberta First Nations have access to clean and safe drinking water.

"It's evident that our natural water source is at risk and a water line would be essential to help protect this precious resource for future generations,” said Chief Tony Alexis of Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation. “After working to develop partnerships with all levels of government, they have taken this positive step to ensure my community and other communities will have access to clean, sustainable drinking water.”
