The National Assessment of Water and Wastewater Systems in First Nation Communities has been completed and the results have been released. … Thirty-nine per cent of the systems surveyed were classified as high overall risk with 34 per cent labeled medium overall risk and 27 per cent categorized as low overall risk. The high-risk water systems affect 25 per cent of Canada’s on-reserve population.
