Water supply system upgrades provide water to 287 people in 130 homes
WOODSTOCK FIRST NATION, NB, March 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Minister Bernard Valcourt congratulated the Woodstock First Nation in western New Brunswick on completing its water supply system upgrades. Since fiscal year 2007-2008, the Government of Canada has invested more than $2.8 million into the upgrades that will help ensure safe drinking water for the community.
- The work, carried out over four years, included upgrades to the Woodstock First Nation water treatment and distribution system and covered the following:
- re-configuration of well;
- discharge piping;
- implementation of new Pressure Reducing Valve chamber;
- assessment and rehabilitation of existing wells;
- hydrant installation and repairs;
- pumphouse fire pump modifications;
- process and control equipment upgrades;
- installation of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system; and,
- twinning of the current water storage reservoir.
- Funding for the upgrades came from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada's First Nation Water and Wastewater Action Plan (FNWWAP).
"Improving access to safe drinking water in First Nation communities is a priority for our Government, which is why I am extremely pleased that work to upgrade the Woodstock First Nation water supply system is completed. This is proof that our Government is working with First Nations to improve water and wastewater infrastructure in their communities. In fact, Economic Action Plan 2014 includes $323.4 million to improve water and wastewater infrastructure on First Nation communities."
Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development
"First Nations should have the same access to safe, clean and reliable drinking water enjoyed by all Canadians. I am proud to be part of a Government that continues to make key investments to increase the effectiveness of water services in First Nation communities."
Member of Parliament for Tobique-Mactaquac

But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
