Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) has published its latest report on short-term water advisories which are issued for temporary water quality issues on specific water systems.

As of July 17, 2019, there were 37 short-term Drinking Water Advisories (DWA) in effect in First Nations communities across Canada, excluding BC; and 1 in BC issued by the First Nation Health Authiority (FNHA)

The short-term advisories in each province are listed below.

Long-term advisories - advisories that have been in place for more than a year - are also listed by ISC along with a targeted resolution date.

There are currently 57 long-term advisories across Canada. To view a full list of the long-term DWAS, click here

WATER MUSIC

Russia
WaterToday is on the lookout for original water music. After asking around on reddit we came across Peter Sigaev who lives and studies music in Moscow. Peter agreed to compose a 10-minute soundtrack for WaterToday. We gave him creative control over the project but insisted that marine sounds and original instruments be part of the score. After much to and fro, we acquired to rights to his 'Water Hopefulness'.
