Berens River, Man. – The First Nation community’s water treatment plant is getting $5.5 million from the federal government to be used toward needed upgrades.

Among the slated infrastructure improvements are an electrical system expansion, mechanical equipment and reservoir upgrades and the replacement of the water intake.

These upgrades are expected to increase access to potable water and accommodate the long-term growth of the community.


“As our community continues to grow, it is crucial to have critical infrastructure in place and have access to potable drinking water,” Chief Norman McKay, Berens River First Nation, said.
