A community in Lytton First Nation is now enjoying safe drinking water thanks to a small-scale water treatment solution that’s made the process affordable.
Lytton First Nation is made up of 56 reserves located on both sides of the Fraser River about 160 kilometres north of Chilliwack along the Trans-Canada Highway.
While the area is rich in water resources, the Nickeyeah reserve continued to experience boil water advisories.
A new water treatment system for the community was developed in the labs of Madjid Mohseni, a professor in the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC). He’s also the scientific director of RES’EAU-WaterNET, a program aimed at the clean water needs of small, rural and First Nation communities.
