The City of Humboldt recently had a Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory in place for a small number of neighbourhoods, a new report released by the Council of Canadians, says water service disruptions are quite common in Saskatchewan.

A report released by the social justice advocating non-profit organization says 294 Saskatchewan communities, including 24 First Nation communities currently have drinking water advisories.

That is the second most among the provinces.

According to the Council, there is no national standards for water quality monitoring, and that makes it difficult to see how many people are living within the PDWAs.

Recently in the news it was brought forward that the Neskantaga First Nation has been under a boil-water advisory for 20 years, the longest in Canada.
