Slate Falls, in Northern Ontario, has opened its new water treatment plant after being under a boil water advisory for the last 14 years. Chief Lorraine Crane indicates that the new facility will provide clean, safe drinking water for all 300 residents. The opening of this plant brings the community’s water system up to modern standards, instead of relying on buying bottled water, which was very expensive for residents.
The new water treatment plant will also provide fire fighting infrastructure such as water pumps and hydrants.
