Enoch Cree Nation linking to Edmonton’s water system

The project includes construction of a new water supply line and a new water reservoir and pumphouse.


Construction is beginning on a project that will connect Enoch Cree Nation to the City of Edmonton’s water system and ensure the growing community has access to safe drinking water.

“Nipy Pimatan – water is life. In addition to bringing clean water to our core village, this expansion will support business development and create partnerships with the County of Parkland,” said¬†Chief Billy Morin,¬†Enoch Cree Nation in a government release.

Under a boil water advisory, the Enoch Cree Nation’s old water treatment plant will remain in service to provide the community with a source of non-potable water for uses such as fighting grass fires.

The water system project includes construction of a new water supply line and a new water reservoir and pumphouse to provide a sustainable drinking water supply.

The Government of Canada plans to invest approximately $12.5 million to support the completion of the project.
