Drinking Water Challenges in Indigenous Communities

Corinne Schuster-Wallace (Ph.D., Associate Professor Geography and Planning and Global Institute for Water Security, University of Saskatchewan)
The Sustainable Development Goals call for access to drinking water for everyone, everywhere, by 2030. This includes all Canadians. Unfortunately, too many Indigenous communities in Canada do not have appropriate access to drinking water. Currently eight communities in Saskatchewan are on long term drinking water advisories and at least another eight are on a short term drinking water advisory. This has implications for health and wellbeing in these communities.

Water on the Prairies: why it’s weird and getting weirder

Kevin Shook (P.Eng., Research Scientist, Centre for Hydrology, Global Water Futures, University of Saskatchewan)
Global Water Futures is working on understanding the complexities of Prairie hydrology, which is unlike that of any other region on earth. The major rivers get almost all of their water from from the Rocky Mountains and their foothills. Within the Prairies, there are few rivers, and much of the surface runoff is stored in sloughs.
Artificial drainage is altering the landscape, and affecting streamflows, and water quality. Runoff used to be dominated by spring snowmelt, but we are starting to see more summer events as well, so we need to understand the effects of changes in landuse and climate.
