The Environmental Services Department works in conjunction with the Fort Fraser Local Commission, Northern Health, and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change to manage and operate the drinking water and wastewater (sewage) services for the community of Fort Fraser. The water system includes two ground water wells, pump station, reservoir and distribution network while the sewage treatment system includes a series of three lagoons which act to filter, treat and polish the effluent prior to discharge to the Nechako River.

"In 2017, under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund, Fort Fraser was approved for $3.1 million in federal-provincial funding for the design plan and replacement of the majority of the community’s water distribution system. The awarded funds are a major contribution to the Fort Fraser Infrastructure Improvement Project, a project that is vital to the community due to the fact the current infrastructure has reached its end of useful life, creating the potential to disrupt essential water service, as well as create health and safety concerns for the community.

This project includes the development of a detailed design plan and replacement of a majority of the water distribution system in the community. The new design plan will accommodate the current user capacity and allow for future infill in the community. It will also ensure adequate firefighting services for the community.

The RDBN would also like to acknowledge the support of the Fort Fraser Local Commission, whose advocacy and commitment to their community were key factors in the successful completion of this funding application. “
