Addressing Clean Drinking Water Challenges in First Nations

Pattern Discovery has assembled an All-Canadian team of technology companies and service providers to permanently resolve the long-term issues related to clean drinking water in First Nations

The “TEAM” has worked collaboratively to develop unique, sustainable, clean drinking water solutions that address the systemic problems facing water treatment operators in remote communities

Drinking-Water Challenges in First Nations

The “TEAM” has worked collaboratively to develop unique, sustainable, clean drinking water solutions that address the systemic problems facing water treatment operators in remote communities.

It could form part of the infrastructure for a self-governed water policy for First Nations, ensuring compliance with emerging First Nations regulations. The data from water treatment systems across the country will provide unique insight for the regulatory body into potential challenges facing remote communities – allowing for a more accurate picture of budgeting and funding requirements to meet these long-term needs.

First Nations Helping First Nations

A unique component of the Drinking Water Solutions for First Nations is our vison for creating an Innovation Hub and Regional Technical Support Centres, staffed and operated by First Nations personnel. 

The Innovation Hub was act as a catalyst to showcase technologies and build programs that would provide simple, reliable, and sustainable operations to First Nations communities.  The Regional Centres would provide guidance and support to operators in partner communities, helping with troubleshooting problems and developing best practices for water treatment operations. 

They would have access to the same operational data as provided to the community operators, allowing them to clearly understand the factors that could be affecting operations and provide expert opinions and guidance in problem-solving exercises.
