Duncan’s First Nation in Alberta reveals a new $13 million Water Treatment Plant (WTP).

Duncan’s First Nation in northern Alberta has introduced its new water treatment facility, funded by a $13 million investment from Indigenous Services Canada.

Virginia Gladue, Chief of Duncan’s First Nation, highlighted that the new plant will not only deliver clean, filtered drinking water but also support the establishment of firefighting services, as well as planned trout pond facilities and vertical farming practices.

Chief Gladue stated in a release, “We will now have the required water pressure to serve all our existing and future residential and community structures.”

Situated within the Municipal District of Peace No. 135, approximately 39 kilometers southwest of the Peace River, Duncan’s First Nation emphasizes the importance of air, food, and water as essential elements of life.

Chief Gladue remarked, “We are a nation of individuals who resided on this land when water could be consumed directly from the rivers and lakes. Today, due to land overuse and water pollution, we can no longer consume fish from most rivers or drink water without filtration.”
