Clean Water

RNAO Recommendations

Clean Water is a Right

  1. Strengthen source water protection to ensure that municipal waste and municipal sewage do not compromise the quality of drinking water.
  2. Recognize that access to safe, clean drinking water is a human right. This includes monitoring drinking water quality and safety, and self-determination for Aboriginal communities to provide them control over their own resources.
  3. Work with municipalities to ban the sale of bottled water in publicly owned places. Our shared resource should not be bottled for huge profits where safe, clean public drinking water exists.
