Now a graduate from the Water First Intern program, Eric splits his time between the water plant and working on environmental projects like his communities source water protection plan.
Eric explains, “This Internship has taught me more about the situation of clean water in our province. I didn’t know how many First Nations communities were without clean water. I really want to change that in the next few years.”
During the Internship, Eric has enjoyed learning about a variety of drinking water systems in Manitoulin’s other six First Nations communities, as well as gaining more in-depth knowledge about water quality testing.
