AFN Chiefs Assembly Graphic

In December 2015 the Assembly of First Nations passed Resolution 65-2015 in support of the Safe Water Project.

The Assembly agreed that the Safe Water Project “has proven to be effective in eliminating short, medium and long-term boil water advisories, and in strengthening the capacity of and empowering First Nations communities to manage their water systems.”

It was therefore resolved that the Chiefs-in-Assembly: “Support the Safe Water Project as an approach to minimize and prevent boil water advisories and to empower communities to effectively manage their own water systems, by providing training, certification and support to water operators and personnel; deploying TRITON – Intelligent SurveillanceTM technology, which allows communities to continuously and remotely monitor the quality of their water; and providing licensed operational personnel to support local operators as they pursue certification.”
