Who is NWI?

Established in the Municipality of Red Lake in 1997, NWI operates, maintains and manages 50% of all municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities west of Thunder Bay to the Manitoba border, and employs over 40 professionals dedicated to setting new industry standards and best practices. 

Further, NWI provides various consulting services, including a 24-7 hotline for technical support and emergency responses, to every First Nation in Ontario (127 communities) either directly or through the Government of Canada’s Department of Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks’ (MECP) Spills Action Centre (SAC).

What Does NWI do?

NWI has been providing water and wastewater operations, maintenance and management services to Municipal, First Nation and Industrial clients for over two decades and currently operates, maintains and manages 35 municipal water and wastewater subsystems. These systems include over 60 individual facilities that are distributed over a geographical area that is similar in size to that of France and Germany combined.

What people say about Northern Waterworks Inc:

…it should be noted that the operation of your facility is very well run. I would also like to recognize the Municipality of Red Lake and Northern Waterworks Inc. for their exceptional cooperation with implementing recommendations provided by past inspection reports and for continually striving to improve the quality of water provided to consumers.
