Fort Hope Boil Water Advisory Continues

Posted on Friday, June 30, 2017 13:45 PM

A boil water advisory remains in place on the Fort Hope First Nation.

Earlier this month, a fire to a building beside the water purification
resevoir contaminated the water supply.

Kenora M.P. Bob Nault says progress is being made to get the water system
up and running again.

He says the new pump house has been re-built, but the boil water advisory
is being kept in place as a precaution.  

Nault was in the community earlir this week along with Canada's Health Minister Jane Philpott.
