The Northwestern Health Unit survey released last week showing devastating septic conditions on the Mishkeegogamang First Nation was not the first of its kind. Health Canada and Indian Affairs assessed sewage conditions there in the spring.
In the last week of April, Indian Affairs met with the band leadership to discuss the results of Health Canada’s inspection of septic systems. At that meeting, the government offered to earmark funding to fix the 20 systems identified in most dire need by the band and asked for a long-term projection of infrastructural budgets. That report has still not been received.
