Quality of Water


Canada accepts responsibility to ensure the continuous availability of a potable water supply on each of the Reserves. The quality of the water shall meet the health and safety standards set by Canada to protect the public health.


Canada shall be reimbursed by Hydro to the extent of 50% of its reasonable expenditures incurred in providing potable water to any Reserve to the extent that such expenditures are attributable to adverse effects of the Project, or to the risk of such adverse effects. Any dispute may be referred to the Arbitrator for determination.
